GSO services


The Grant Support team delivers services around the "The Grant lifecycle"; with a focus on the idea development, funding advice, and pre-award phases.

Grant Life Cycle support: The grant life cycle refers to the entire process a grant goes through. From determining funding strategy (matching your idea with the right funding opportunity), through the pre-award phase (proposal development, submission) and post-award phase (project execution, ending with the closeout).
While the grant lifecycle can be long and includes some complex elements, it also has a lot of consistency and follows a relatively linear path. The grant lifecycle comprises three distinct phases: Idea Development and Funding Advice, Pre-Award and Post-Award.

  • Idea Development and Funding Advice: The process begins with development of the researcher’s idea, which is followed by an identification of matching funding instruments, and finishes with a search for opportunities.
  • Pre-Award Phase: The next step is to prepare the proposal (including pre-submission reviews) and the application submission. If the proposal is positively reviewed, a number of procedures applicable to the specific type of grant formalising legal and financial obligations have to be followed before the grant is officially awarded.
  • Post-Award Phase: The final phase is also the longest phase, as it concerns the execution of the project, along with all the reporting, audits, and closeout processes.
The duration of the grant lifecycle and its phases varies based on several aspects: grant type, grant program, funding agency, and relevant legislation. The duration of the Post-Award phase varies the most because this is when the implementation of the project occurs (that is, tackling the different activities planned in the project).
