Research Support

The team supports research development and the submission of funding applications. We offer assistance from the beginning, when your research is simply an idea, through to final application.

Specific areas of support include:

Research & Business Development

The Research & Business Development teams support the development of research applications, as well as collaborations within and beyond academia. Please involve this team as early as possible in the development of your idea for research.

The teams mainly work within a Faculty, although they may work across Faculties to facilitate interdisciplinary research or to advise on specific Research Council opportunities, for example, if you are interested in applying to the AHRC contact Sue, Paige or Peter, and for the ESRC, Jane, Adam, Hilary or Helen.

Knowledge Exchange

We are delighted to have been awarded a further £1.3M by the ESRC to continue ESRC Impact Accelerator Account funding. The details of this award-winning programme of research can be found here

Costing a Proposal

The Research Funding Office provides essential costings advice and guidance in submitting research grant applications, including all queries relating to RIS and electronic submission.

The Research Development and Funding Office teams work closely together and may both be involved in meeting with you to develop your ideas.
