Research Support Office

About us

We offer specialist knowledge and targeted support to the University of Edinburgh's research community across the research lifecycle and particularly in the pursuit of funding.

We help develop research projects at any scale, from small awards to complex interdisciplinary bids. This includes horizon scanning, guidance on research funders, advice on targeting the right opportunities, identifying pathways to impact, developing the bid and dealing with contractual matters upon award.

We provide resources for researchers and the extended community of research support, through linked services and shared training, throughout the University.

Our RSO blog will bring you some of the latest information about research funding and policy, including our events and other initiatives designed to help you on your way: http://www.blog.rso.ed.ac.uk
