Expressions of Interest (EOIs)
The aim of the EOI meeting is to discuss the concept of the bid and provide advice on how best to complete the application form. Those who were unsuccessful in Round 2 can use the EOI meeting as an opportunity for feedback and to improve their bid if they are considering resubmitting.
To book an EOI meeting: email or call the RGF team at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 7215 6758 / 0207 215 3821 indicating your region and specifying the reason for your meeting - to discuss a new proposal or a previous application.
To discuss a new proposal please submit a draft application form - section B as a minimum should be completed. If you wish to discuss a previous bid please provide the project reference.
EOI meeting appointments will be available until 31 May 2012 for Round 3 of the RGF.
