Funding, and getting more of it, might be a frequent concern of yours as well as many other fellow researchers.
Edinburgh Research and Innovation (ERI) is a wholly-owned subsidiary company of the University of Edinburgh. They provide a range of support for researchers within the University, including support related to research funding.
The Research Development team aim to assist academics in applying for funding by making sure they are aware of relevant opportunities and sharing best practice on application writing.
Once the funder and scheme is identified the Research Support team will provide costings and advice on the application before providing the institutional authorisation. Both teams work in close collaboration with research support staff in your school or research centre.
ERI and the Institute for Academic Development together deliver a course to help early career researchers locate and successfully apply for suitable sources of research funding. This course is suitable for researchers in the second or third year of their PhD and for researchers who have recently completed a PhD.
Full information is available from ERI's web pages.
