To apply for radiocarbon dating support you need to be from a UK academic institution and be eligible to apply for a grant to the relevant research council. The facility will help with information needed to prepare an application.
The application process aims to gather all of the information necessary to judge the underlying research and the application of radiocarbon dating within it. To prepare an application you should:
Ideally keep the application document size down to 2MB by conversion to pdf. Otherwise you may need to resend it when we acknowledge receipt of the application.
When filling in the form online hold you cursor over the name of the field you are filling in for further help. If you need any more help with filling in the form please contact the facility.
Applications will be graded by a panel appointed by NERC which meets twice a year.
The next deadline is shown on the facility home page.
