Our project development process goes from the initial idea through to completion and reporting on the results. Our hubs are developing at different speeds, with their own target industries and academic communities, so the process may vary depending on which hub sponsors your proposal. The normal timeline to full approval is around 3-4 months, but proposals for smaller projects (less than £50k) can be assessed more quickly. For more information, contact Business Pipeline Manager Ailsa.Falconer@ei.ed.ac.uk
If unsuccessful, get feedback from hub on whether it can be improved and resubmitted.
Relevant hub works with project lead to refine proposal’s alignment with DDI objectives. Complete full business case and submit to DDI office via hub.
