Research funding, applications and awards

We have a wealth of information at Oxford to help researchers and research support staff to find funding, assist with the application process, and manage resulting research awards.

How to Find Funding

  • Finding research funding: general guidance from Research Services
  • Use ResearchProfessional.com, the external funding information database to which the University subscribes
  • See the Oxford Gateway to Europe for Oxford-specific EC/Horizon 2020 funding information. This information portal gives guidance on European funding-related activities and support at Oxford. It is mainly aimed at internal researchers and staff, but also provides advice and support to potential external collaborators (universities, SMEs, industry and non-academic organisations)
  • Contact Research Facilitators in your subject area, who will be able to give additional advice and support
