Steps

 

Choice of funding You have decided what grant to apply for. Inform the Researchdesk team to help you set up a timeline, specifically for this grant.
Embedding in your institute Make sure embedding in your institute is guaranteed. It’s mandatory to timely discuss matters with the institute board and the chair of your department (i.e. regarding finance, possible permanent contracts, workstations and so forth).
Budget Together with Projectcontrol and your institute manager, draw up a budget for your project and, if applicable, discuss the financing of overhead costs. 
Interne akkoordverklaring   Confirm approval of your application and have all concerned (at your institute and Projectcontrol) sign the “Interne Akkoordverklaring”. Only with this document Leiden University’s legal representative (usually the managing director, on some cases the Dean) can sign (supporting) documents (and at a later stage agreements and contracts).
Legal check In some cases fund givers request Leiden University’s consent to all terms and conditions in advance (an exception, but it occurs). Then the legal team at Luris must be involved to determine if Leiden University can comply (contact through Researchdesk).
Mock interview During the application phase at NWO and ERC, you might be invited to present your research proposal. Our team at the Researchdesk will kindly help you organize a mock interview so you can practice this presentation and interview and get useful feedback from colleagues. 
Apply! Submit your application.
