Funding Opportunities

There is a vast range of funding opportunities available to undertake research from research councils to charitable bodies and internal funding. These range in size and scope from personal awards for career advancement such as fellowships, project funding for small pilot or feasibility studies to multisite definitive trials and large programmes of research.  

The Research & Innovation development team can help you to identify the right funder for your study and highlight funding opportunities that match your needs. In this section of the website you will find information on the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) which is a major funder of NHS, social care and public health research and has various research programmes, training and fellowships available as well as other funding opportunities arising from NIHR partners and charitable bodies.
