Edinburgh Research Office

We work alongside researchers to grow ideas into fundable proposals. We provide expertise at all stages, from developing your idea and identifying funding to crafting your application and managing your award. 

We work with research leaders to develop research strategies based on sound funder insights and intelligence. We offer expertise across UK, European and international funders.

We are enablers and connectors, networked across the University, able to provide the best advice to researchers and research leaders in all disciplines.

Winning research funding is a team effort. Together with colleagues in local Research Offices, we provide you with the expertise that will help you secure research funding. Find contact details for your Research Funding Specialist and your local Research Office.

We provide expertise and advice to help you manage your research grant. We work closely with finance colleagues in Schools, Centres and Institutes in order to deliver high-quality, joined-up support. Find contact details for your Research Grants Administrator.

In 2023, UKRI will be transitioning from accepting funding applications via Je-S, to the Funding Service system.

In order for us to support applications appropriately, applicants to any AHRC or EPSRC open-ended schemes must inform us by 8 March 2023 via the page below (UoE staff only)

The transition to UKRI's The Funding Service

The Conference provides a space where our research support services colleagues can learn, share and network .

To support the delivery of the Research Support Services Conference 2023 we are putting together an organising group and are looking for 3 volunteers to take up the role of thematic programme leads, and a welcome and logistics lead.

We offer access to successful applications to our researchers, to provide inspiration and real-life examples to colleagues in the process of crafting their own application.

Across five areas of excellence our researchers are tackling big questions, adding to our collective understanding and forging bold new paths through innovation.
