CMVM How to Use Teams for Research Grant Submissions

This page contains two short guides to support setting up a new Team using Microsoft Office 365, and how new users might use a Team for collaborative working, as well as links to other material on Teams.

Setting up a new Team for a research grant application

How to set up a new Team using Microsoft Office 365, and invite people to collaborate, with the example of preparing for a research grant application.

This guide is based around an example where University staff collaborate, together with external collaborators, to prepare a research grant for submission.

The same principle can be applied to many other collaborative scenarios, such as organising a conference, co-writing books or chapters, and developing a course – such as planning the syllabus, developing talks and workshops then developing the workshop materials and content.
