Would you like support with your search for external funding opportunities?

Research Professional: UCLan has a subscription to the funding portal Research Professional. Research Professional covers all scholarly disciplines, varieties of funder and types of opportunity; from medicine to the humanities; from the largest research council to the smallest private charity; from big multi-centre collaborative projects to small travel grants.

GFU are hosting a series of funding workshops; the aim of these workshops is for attendees to create a highly tailored funding search based on their research interests. These searches can then be set to alert users on a weekly basis to the latest funding opportunities that match their search criteria.

UCLanKnowledge: GFU will also demonstrate UCLanKnowledge – UCLanKnowledge is a database that contains information on the academic interests, expertise and professional affiliations of staff across the University. GFU will  demonstrate the system functionality and give attendees the opportunity to explore the system and create a profile. Having a profile on UCLanKnowledge makes you visible to GFU, supporting us in dissemination of funding opportunities. GFU Webpages: GFU will show you how to access our web pages to find useful information and sign up to our blog to receive funding alerts.

If you cannot make any of 2020/21 workshop dates but would like support with finding funding opportunities, please contact the Grants and Funding Unit at
