UQ approval to submit an ARC LIEF grant will be a two-step process.
STEP 1: Expression of Interest
UQ is using this light touch Expression of Interest (EOI) to ensure that the University’s proposals are closely aligned with UQ and sector requirements and to allow for strategic input into the application. The EOI is required for all UQ lead and non-lead bids (i.e. LIEF applications led by another University). Teams should seek input from their School/Centre/Faculty/Institute prior to this submitting to UQ R&I.
STEP 2: Cash Proforma
Once the project concept is approved centrally UQ R&I will advise teams so that they can continue to work on their applications and to prepare a cash proforma. This should be submitted to your Faculty/Institute/Centre at the earliest opportunity who will then submit to UQ R&I.
Submitting your EOI to UQ R&I
Select 'Submit' to UQ R&I to lodge the form with UQ R&I. Please note that you can return to a partially completed form once the madatory contact details are completed.
