From 2013 onwards applications to this fund be invited on a two-year cycle. Eligible members of staff may, in other words, apply for funding both in the current year and the year ahead, though, as the terms and conditions state, may receive only €500 in total in any given financial (in other words, academic) year. Where an application is approved for the year following the one in which it is made, a member of staff would therefore be ineligible to make a further application in the year in question where the total funds applied for would exceed €500.
There will be four calls per annum be made, to facilitate advance planning on the part of members of staff. The deadlines for these calls will be as follows:
