Study Development

If you have a research idea and looking for funding we can help. On these webpages you will find guidance and useful resources for developing your research idea, where to find funding, how to pull a grant application together and the NBT R&I Research Fund.

Developing a new study idea and applying for funding can be daunting so please contact us so that we can support you with this process. Additionally, grant applications require R&I sign off and to do this we need to ensure that, at the very least, the project is costed correctly and fully. Therefore if you are planning on submitting a grant through NBT, or if the grant has NBT costs associated with it, please contact R&I at an early stage and no later than 3 weeks in advance of the deadline.
