Research Grant Development

We support academic staff to secure grant funding and realise their research ambitions.

Working with academic research leaders, we are responsible for:

  • identifying research capability with potential for growth
  • bringing people together to address major research challenges
  • capturing funding opportunities

You can request an application surgery, for support with reviewing your external funding applications.
