Any applicant for funding, should in the first instance contact their school representative. The pre-award team provides assistance to all schools in the preparation of research grants and contracts. This is mainly for any applications to Research Councils/Charities and other non-commercial bodies. We also provide support to schools with any financial/non financial queries they have relating to submission/application process.

The pre-award team works in partnership together with colleagues in the Academic Divisions, Departments, School Managers, and the University Administration to support the development of proposals.

To get started with your application, see the below links (please note that links are for internal access only):
