Welcome to the Research Funding area of the RIS website.

In the current funding climate it is essential to ensure both that research funding applications from one of the UK leading research institutions are fully supported, and that our research outcomes are effectively publicised. The Research and Innovation Service (RIS) facilitates this through the provision of strategic central support to research and innovation activities across the University.

The Funding Development Team within RIS comprises seven staff who lead on designing and implementing University-wide funding strategies for all public sector funding, covering UK, EU and International streams. It also provides tailored information on relevant opportunities for our academics and provides bespoke support to applicants from conception of the initial idea to submission of a completed bid.

A major element of funding success is alerting academics to the relevant funding opportunities and supporting intelligence as early as possible. We aim to promote funding opportunities and intelligence as well as showcase the University's research achievements here and through our Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest, LinkedIn and other Social Media sites.
