To be successful in applying for research funding it is important to know what funding is out there and when the application deadlines are. To help, the university subscribes to a website called Research Professional www.reseachprofessional.com.
There are over six thousand research funding calls currently open on Research Professional. The site can be used to make a tailored search for your research project. You can filter your search in a range of ways. This includes discipline, what you want money for or which funders you are interested in.
After you have made the search, you can see which funds are open. Plus you can save the details and set Research Professional to email each time new funds open which fit your criteria. Using this tool can ensure you are always up to date on open calls in your research field.
You can download a step by step guide on setting up searches here: Using Research Professional
You will not need to set up an account to search on Research Professional, but you will need one to save your settings. Using a University email address when you create your account will let Research Professional know your subscription is already paid for.
You can speak you the External Projects Team to get further details on using Research Professional.
