So you’re new to…UK research funding


Part one of this two-part primer of primers looks at government funding mechanisms

This two-part article is intended for researchers who have moved to UK academia recently (welcome!) and for UK researchers in the very early stages of their careers. My aim is to give a very brief tour of the UK research funding landscape and help you get to grips with some of the terminology.

In part one, I’ll look at government or public funding and say a bit about different funding models for research. In part two, I’ll touch on research charities, learned societies and European Union funding, and conclude with some general advice on finding research funding opportunities.
