 Research funding - finding opportunities

The University holds a subscription to Research Professional, an online service that provides research news and details of funding opportunities. Click the image below to be taken direct to the website:


Open Research

Funders are increasingly asking researchers to make their outputs available in easily accessible, public repositories. At the same time, it is just as important as ever to make sure that ideas and research with commercial potential are protected. The University of Birmingham has a number of departments that can advise on this.
