The University of Manchester has an agreement to access the Research Professional database and recommends future investigators use this to find information about possible research funding opportunities. ResearchResearch includes a comprehensive database of funding opportunities, which currently contains over 7,000 open calls for funding with details of on how and when to apply and eligibility criteria. Anyone on campus can freely access Research Professional without the need for a password.

  • Share resources with other users: for example, a researcher in respiratory diseases can set up a list of leading funders in that area and share it with colleagues in their department.
