Research funding opportunities

  • Research funding opportunities can be identified in several ways:

    • Research Professional - a source of funding opportunities and news on research policy and politics. It contains information on calls for bids and gives access to general and subject-specific research-related information. To register complete the online form.
    • UKRO Information Service - a searchable database of European funding opportunities, policy developments and funding news. Tailored emails can be set up. You must register on the website to access this function.
    • Talk to experienced colleagues in related disciplines. They will have knowledge of the funders who are most likely to fund research in your discipline.
    • Talk to your Faculty Research Manager and Research Grants Officer who have a wealth of knowledge about funding opportunities.
    • Contact the Research Support Office - if you are looking for funding for a particular project or funding area we can help you identify possible sources.
