Writing grant applications

Seeking HNELHD Approval to submit a research grant funding application:

For all research grant funding applications that include any involvement from any service within HNELHD (relating (but not limited to) staff time, patient recruitment or data access, any other resources etc) are required to seek the endorsement from that relevant Service and General Manager (or Director if a Professional portfolio) of that service, and any other service within HNE that your proposal will impact.

Having this communication and seeking the appropriate endorsement early (ie before grant submission), will allow any queries/interest to be addressed prior to grant submission, following this process will eliminate any caveats to be addressed (and included or removed from your proposal) prior to your funding arriving.

Please find attached template HNE Endorsement Template to assist you with this process.
