Major sponsors

These pages include our latest guidance for the main funders of academic research at Oxford and information about electronic submission systems and processes. A list of Research Services guidance for all major sponsors can also be found on the Research Services Guidance page (or on the Gateway to Europe for Horizon 2020). 



If you are thinking of putting together a grant application, please get in touch with your Departmental Administrator, Research Officer or Research Facilitator as soon as possible (and at the very latest four weeks before the deadline), so that they can provide advice and assistance with the preparation of your proposal. The sooner you get in touch, the more they will be able to help.

Please also remember that applications must be submitted to Research Services at least 5 working days prior to the funder's deadline. Before applications come to Research Services they must first be approved within the Department and so it is important to leave adequate time for this too.
