There are an increasing number of institutional grants, funding calls, and research funds that require facilitation and coordination to maximise their benefit to the University. The Research Strategy Office oversees such calls, grants and funds in a number of cases, and funding support is available thru the University for large bid preparation.

'Restricted' calls: Funding opportunities that limit institutional applications, offer small numbers of awards, or are required by the funder/sponsor to be internally coordinated are usually managed by the Research Strategy Office. For further details and for all current 'restricted' calls, see the 'Restricted' Calls pages.

Internal funding opportunities: A number of internal calls for funding and research funds awarded directly to the University are also coordinated by the Research Strategy Office. For information on internal funding opportunities that are currently administered by the Office, see the Internal Funding Opportunity pages

Interdisciplinary grants: The Research Strategy Office will also sometimes provide assistance on large interdisciplinary grant applications for which a measure of coordination will maximise the chance of success. In addition, the Research Strategy Office administers a Research Policy Committee scheme that provides financial support for the preparation of large cross-School funding bids. For further information, click on our page for Funding for Large bid preparation or see the Support for Large Bid Preparation websites 

CID places major relevant RCUK /other calls on our Open Funding Calls page. This list is regularly updated but is selected key opportunities.

In addition, we have set up a link for you to browse a live view of  broader range of funding opportunities linked to infectious diseases research both below and on the Live Feed - Research Professional page

CUDAR The Cambridge University Development and Alumni Relations Office (CUDAR) are involved in fundraising for major gifts for academic priorities across the University. If you feel your project may be suitable, you should discuss your Head of Department in the first instance about whether CUDAR could be of assistance.

Pathways to Policy Impact: The Centre for Science and Policy (CSap) is now offering support in writing the ‘Pathways to Impact’ section of grant proposals, helping you explore the policy implications of your research and connecting you to policy makers to increase the impact of your work. CSaP can use its thriving network of Policy Fellows and established ways of bringing together policy makers and academics to help your research achieve policy impact.

Horizon 2020 

The UK Government encourages the UK research and innovation (R&I) community to continue applying for Horizon 2020 funding and participating in Horizon 2020 projects because:

● Until our departure from the EU, we remain a Member State, with all the rights and obligations that entails.

This means that UK entities are eligible to participate in all aspects of the Horizon 2020 programme while we remain a member of the EU. 

● The UK and the EU fully intend UK entities’ eligibility in Horizon 2020 to remain unchanged for the duration of the programme, as set out in the Joint Report. This includes eligibility to participate in all Horizon 2020 projects and to receive Horizon 2020 funding for the lifetime of projects.

● The Government’s underwrite guarantee remains in place in the event that commitments made in the Joint Report are not met.
