altc feedback
ALTC feedback
  • There was inadequate preparation in terms of literature reviews, and situating applications in relation to current and past work
  • Single institution applications without clear applicability to the sector and wider community
  • Dissemination poorly understood and addressed
  • Requirements for project management not considered
  • IP issues not addressed
  • Many budgets contained simple errors
  • In a number of cases the budgets appeared unrealistically high
  • Budgets need to be clearly related to activities and outcomes detailed in the application.
