The  Research Strategy Office team works with researchers to help develop collaborative cross-School, cross-disciplinary research activity, facilitate the development of institutional relationships with major research funders, support the University's submission to the Research Excellence Framework, oversee certain cross-School grants for impact acceleration and collaboration, and manage University's response to major funding calls.


The University subscribes to the Research Professional Database, in which criteria can be set to search for more discipline-specific funding, from UK, EU and international sources. Members of the School of Biological Sciences can also find funding opportunities on the School Information Hub.

The BBSRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) provides funding for recipients of previous BBSRC funding to progress research along the translational pathway, undertake entrepreneurial training, participate in policy workshops, and develop collaborations with industry.

The BBSRC Flexible Talent Mobility Account (FTMA), targeted at talented early career (postdoctoral or equivalent) researchers, is intended to support the exchange of personnel, perspectives and knowledge, skills and expertise between the academic and industrial sectors.
