FedUni LIEF LE21 NoI form (Word Doc 192 KB) for internal and external lead applications
LIEF2021 VicLIEF expressions of interest
In preparation for the ARC LIEF 2021 grants round, Victorian Universities will once again collaborate via a VicLIEF Expressions of Interest process to coordinate applications.
All Federation University researchers intending to submit a LIEF grant application for the 2021 round are required to enter a VicLIEF EoI submission.
The key dates related to VicLIEF and LIEF2021 EoI submission can be found on the Help-sheet available below.
Once the VicLIEF EoI period is complete, the submissions will be reviewed and any further information or clarification will be requested. The DVCRs from each of the participating Victorian University will then meet to review and provide feedback on the submissions.
The Help-sheet for the LE21 VicLIEF Expressions of Interest process is found here:
- To ensure that applicants are provided with appropriate support to develop their applications;
- To ensure that applications are reviewed appropriately to ensure that, if they are to be submitted, they are of competitive quality; and
- To ensure that FedUni’s reputation is not compromised by the submission of non-competitive applications, nor that undue time is spent on developing applications that are unlikely to be competitive.
- An Expression of Interest must be submitted to Research Funding by the advertised date for the scheme being applied for. This EOI must be on the ARC & NHMRC EOI form provided via the links below. The DVCRI and the appropriate Dean or nominee will meet to decide EOI outcomes. If the EOI is approved to progress, the full application will need to pass through the following steps in order:
- Attendance at Internal Workshop (ARC only)
- Two peer reviews (arranged by applicant);
- An external review for comment and subsequent reviews if required (arranged by Research Funding Team);
- Research Funding compliance and budget check;
- Dean and DVCRI approval for final submission.

*EOI deadlines are subject to change upon release of ARC and NHMRC external deadlines. Updates will be communicated via the school and FedNews.
Subsequent internal deadlines will be set and released upon receipt of EOIs. Adherence to the above deadlines ensures that the DVCRI approved process is carried out and managed effectively. Late EOIs will not be accepted unless exceptional circumstances apply, and have been pre-approved by both the School and the DVCRI. However, Research Services staff can be contacted at any time during the process to discuss any aspect of an application.
Any questions or concerns regarding the process can be directed to Tina D’Urbano, Team Leader Research Funding (firstname.lastname@example.org).
