CREST R&D Grant accepts applications twice a year, typically in January and July. Although it takes only around one month to evaluate the submitted applications, the entire application process takes longer. The applicant is expected to carry out preparatory work which can take substantial amount of time prior to submitting the application. Once the application is successful, the applicant is also expected to complete paperwork before funding can be disbursed.
