Highlighting the latest opportunities

 

By simply selecting from the options above you’ll be able to find calls and initiatives in a particular area, from a particular funder or in a specific category such as fellowships. You can also search for opportunities by deadline e.g. 1 month from now.

Why not sign up to the RSS feed and keep up to date on all the latest funding opportunities.

We endeavour to include as many opportunities as we can, but inevitably we might miss some out. It might be useful to have a look at the following pages for more funding calls: Innovate UK, BBSRC, NERC, Horizon 2020 and ERC.  If you know of other opportunities that we should be listed please get in contact.

We are providing three grants of up to £500 to support and address issues relating to diversity in science. Potential uses for the grant include events or activities to encourage diversity in science or research into the lack of representative diversity within the science sector. The grants are open to individuals, groups, charities and businesses. You do not need to be a member of the Biochemical Society to apply. The grants are open to applicants from any country. As part of your application, you will need to demonstrate an understanding of the issues and challenges pertaining to diversity in science and the effectiveness of the proposal to address these issues and challenge.

Newton Researcher Links Workshops bring together early-career researchers from the UK and a partner country to allow them to make international connections that can improve the quality of their research.  Once funded, grants are available for early-career researchers in the UK and the country hosting the workshop to attend.  These grants are funded under the Newton Fund. The Newton Fund aims to promote the economic development and welfare of either the partner countries or, through working with the partner country, to address the problems of poor people around the world.

Smart is a grant scheme which offers funding to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to engage in R&D projects in the strategically important areas of science, engineering and technology, from which successful new products, processes and services could emerge. The scheme supports SMEs carrying out R&D which offers potentially significant rewards and that could stimulate UK economic growth.

LINK applications involve collaborative research with at least one company and one science-base partner (projects with SMEs are particularly favoured) where at least 50% of the full project cost comes from industry (see FAQs for detailed information and example calculations). Applications should be for pre-competitive research that would not be undertaken in this form without LINK support.

Science-led, responsive mode grants where an industrial partner contributes in cash at least 10% of the full economic cost of the project. Additional in-kind contributions from industry are welcome but they neither count against the industry contribution nor the total cost of the project. (See FAQs for example calculations.) Applications are assessed by our Research Committees, alongside standard applications, using the same criteria. IPA projects are normally funded in preference to standard grants of equivalent scientific merit.
