Email networks

Email networks are used to send out information to researchers about new research funding calls, together with internal processes and deadlines for managed schemes and fellowships.

There are nine networks. Membership is based around faculties and schools - but anyone with a relevant research interest is welcome to join any network, and you may join multiple networks at the same time. Members are also able to advertise research seminars.

Please follow these best practice guidelines when sending emails to the networks:

  • Use the BCC address option for your recipients – this will ensure that any replies are sent to the originator of the email and not all members.
  • Include the network name in the subject heading to make them easily identifiable (for example: ‘Artynet’ – funding opportunity for ….)
  • Consider the size of any attachments and whether they need to be attached to prevent recipients Outlook inbox to become full and unable to receive other emails.
  • Out of office messages and delivery failure reports will be sent to the email originator, so please delete these. This is set by Microsoft and cannot be changed (owners of the distribution groups will update the membership with known changes to minimise the delivery failure reports).

For more information about how to join or leave a network and other general information, please visit the IT FAQ page. If you have a query about the networks below, please email
