If funding for a trial is required, it is important to consider that the process of applying and securing funding may take some time. This time should be factored into planning and related activities.
Once you have received confirmation of a funding award from your Funder, they will require you to complete a number of requirements and activities before the trial can formally start. Some of these requirements will be covered in later Toolkit stations, and others will be specific to the Funder. It is important to stay in contact with the Funder at this stage, and provide a timely response to requests and keep them informed of developments and issues.
