A values-based application assessment

In assessing grant applications, the Selection Panel consider:

  • Clarity of objectives and alignment with the Faculty's Advancing Health 2030
  • Opportunities for the research to demonstrate high-quality impact and attract future funding
  • Existing challenges or barriers preventing the work from otherwise being funded and completed
  • Intended outcomes, including the capacity to develop new approaches towards the Faculty’s commitments, or build on existing understandings of diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Opportunities for sustainable divisional, institutional or sector-wide adoption of new approaches and understandings of diversity and inclusion
  • The extent to which the proposed work would raise the visibility and profile of the Faculty in relation to diversity and inclusion (for example, engaging across the faculty with more than a small group of staff or from one School or Department)
