    Funding Insight

    Please note that Funding Insight is not available for all subscription levels.

    Funding Insight is an editorial service designed to provide researchers with deeper insight into the funding landscape, and help provide users with expertise to navigate the grant application and pre-award phase. 

    Organised into four disciplinary hubs — Bio/Medical, Engineering & Physical, Social Sciences and Humanities & Arts — it provides a one-stop shop with materials essential for winning bids.

    Insight articles aim to give you the inside track when preparing applications and planning career moves. They include interviews with funders, previous winners, members of assessment panels and experts in a range of fields and are packed full of top tips, advice on what not to do and information on calls not publicly available.

    Know-how articles provide authoritative guidance from a range of experts on everything involved in winning research funding, furthering your career and ideas on how to boost your CV. Plus regular horizon-scanning articles to keep you up to date on where funders' money might be heading next.
