Update on full stage Project 2022 applications
By HRC Team - 2 Nov, 2021
As COVID-19 continues to cause disruption for health research and researchers, the HRC is working to identify ways we can provide flexibility without compromising the integrity of research proposal assessment or delaying the provision of funding. For invited full stage Project 2022 applications, we have extended the deadline for submission by two weeks to 1 December 2021.
We are also aware that researchers may encounter delays in gaining the formal Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) from subcontractor organisations (e.g. DHBs), which the HRC requires to support proposals where the subcontract value is greater than $50,000. For this 2022 round, if delays with the MoU are encountered, the application can be submitted with letters of support from personnel on the subcontract (all personnel, including time-only), and these will be considered equivalent to an MoU throughout the proposal assessment. We recommend that such applicants send the MoU to the HRC as soon as possible, as MoUs are required at the contracting stage, and we wish to avoid extending contract execution deadlines or project start dates as a result of delays with MoUs.
Any questions or concerns related to the above, or other requirements for full stage applications for the Project 2022 round, can be directed to email@example.com.
