For any queries relating to registration to any Electronic Submission Systems, please email the Research Office. Applicants must therefore register for a user account before they can start to complete an online research proposal. For some systems, the user account must also be validated by the institution. For the majority of funder systems, approval notification emails are routed to a single generic mailbox which is managed by the central Research Office. The Research Office will then forward the approval notifications to the correct Faculty Research Services team, thereby reducing the risk of important emails being left unattended in personal mailboxes. Faculty Research Services teams are still responsible for checking and formally approving proposals as usual, once the Head of Department HoD has given their approval.
