The School Of Technology

The Office of the School coordinates and facilitates research funding activities that need School Level support or oversight, such as Restricted Calls, working closely with Departments within the School and the Central Administration.

We are responsible for the development and management of School-wide strategies, policies and initiatives to improve research grant income and application success rates.

The Departments within the School provide the front line of Research Support Provision and should be contacted in the first instance for advice and support about funding proposal development.

The School of Technology Research Operations Office Pre-Award Team are also available to provide guidance at an early stage of funding applications.

  • As well as funder deadlines for submission of funding applications, please make yourself aware of department submission deadlines as well as University deadlines – which depend on if the funding requested is over £250,000.
  • Please check if your application needs a Letter of Support from your Head of Department, your Head of School or the Pro-Vice Chancellor

Information to help communicate how your research and how the University maintains a positive Research Culture can be accessed on the Research Support Resources Site.

Research Culture

A positive research culture supports not just researchers and innovators but also the entire ecosystem which supports the research and innovation endeavour.
