Using Research Professional to identify funding opportunities

Many thanks to Andrew Wilkinson from the Research & Contracts Support Office for a very useful session on identifying funding opportunities using Research Professional.


How comprehensive is the coverage of this database? Research Professional covers 90% of European funders, and is aiming to have the same coverage worldwide. It’s growing all the time.

Does it cover Horizon 2020 funding? Yes it does.

Does the Research Professional only cover government/public funding, or does it also include industrial funding? It does cover industrial bodies too.

Where do we access the resource? There is a link from the Research & Contract Support Office page, the useful links for researchers section on the Library website, or you use a search engine. When you are on-campus the service will recognise that you have a institutional log in. Off campus, you will need to log in to your account.
