This Research Idea and Proposal Form must be completed for all research projects that HammondCare will be involved in as funders, partners, or participants. Once completed, a copy will be emailed to the nominated Project Contact Person and the Research Governance Office. The application will then be distributed to relevant internal stakeholders for initial Idea endorsement. You will be advised of the outcome. Timeline for this outcome may be anywhere between 1 day and several weeks; dependent on availability of the relevant endorsers.

Once initial endorsement is in place you will be contacted and asked to submit a detailed HammondCare budget document to accompany your Proposal through to the HammondCare Research Governance Committee for approval. the Committee meets once every 2 months, usually in January, March, May, July, September, November of each year.
