Research Funding Opportunities

The following table lists research funding opportunities relevant to colleagues at the University of Reading and it maintained by Research Services (RES). Please note that some schemes require that applications are business-led. For more details, please contact or visit the Finding Funding pages of the RES website (requires UoR log-in).

Please note that Research Services also has a dedicated page for EU funding opportunities with updates on EU funding and policy developments, as well as an Annual Funding Calendar which gives details of annual and recurring calls and not open calls with no deadlines.

You may also be interested to search University UK’s Gateway to international opportunities, a regularly updated​ depository of funding opportunities for international research collaboration and knowledge exchange, aimed at UK-based researchers/institutions.

For the interest of colleagues who are developing research grant proposals, RES also maintains a Successful Proposal Library, containing examples of past applications.
