Subject: Webinar Training for UC LFRP CRT proposal submissions
Dear Contracts & Grants Directors,
For the 2022 UC National Laboratory Fees Research Program collaborative research and training (CRT) awards, we are using the new application and database system, SmartSimple. CRTs are multi-institution proposals that include both UC campuses and UC National Laboratory partners. Each proposal must include participation from at least 3 UC campuses.
To facilitate the budget set-up and user access in the SmartSimple interface and minimize errors, we are holding a required webinar training for the applicants, campuses and national labs. Please ensure that at least one member of your campus C&G/SPO team who will be assisting faculty with their submission, and preferably any team members who may do so, attend this webinar. Principal Investigators who submit a Letter of Intent, and other project personnel identified in the LOI, will received a similar message after the Letter of Intent due date.
The virtual training will be held on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 from 10 to 11 am Pacific Time. Please register here or on our website
and direct any questions to UCRI@ucop.edu.
