Research Professional is an online database of research funding opportunities to which the University subscribes. It offers researchers the opportunity to search for funding in all disciplines from a wide range of sponsors in the UK and overseas. The database of thousands of funding opportunities is available to all members of the University, and you can browse and filter the opportunities, create customised searches of its content, and share funding opportunities with colleagues.
A representative from Research Professional will be visiting the University on Wednesday 26th October to run training sessions on how to get the best out of Research Professional. The 1 hour training session will:
- Introduce the Research Professional platform
- Demonstrate how to locate research funding opportunities which match your interests
- Show you how to set up email alerts to keep you informed of the latest opportunities
There will be three training sessions over the course of the day based at three of the University campuses:
09:30–10:30 Highfield Campus 37/4049 (Senate Room) – Physical and Natural Sciences Session (FEE, FNES and FPSE)
13:30-14:30 Southampton General Hospital LC51– Medical Sciences Session (FHS and Medicine)
15:00-16:00 Avenue Campus 65/1097 Social Sciences Session (FBLA, FHums and FSHMS)
Whilst each session will be tailored towards a set of disciplines and Faculties please note that the overall approach will be the same and is translatable, so please attend whichever session is most convenient.
