Although much of academic research funding comes from Research Councils, the EC and charities, there are other potential funding sources worth considering when looking for funding. Many of these can be found on ResearchProfessional.com, a funding opportunities database the University subscribes to, but the University also lists centrally other possible internal and external funding sources.
See further guidance at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/researchsupport/findfunding/
Due to the scope and complexity of the research areas covered within the Department of Materials it is not possible to maintain a complete list of funding opportunities. Researchers are recommended to use the Advanced Search functionality of http://www.researchprofessional.com to filter for funding opportunities relevant to their specific interests.
Departmental staff are notified via email when popular calls or new initiatives are announced.
For more information please talk to Alana Davies (Department Administrator) or Chris Grovenor (Head of Department).
