Dear colleagues, there recently has been the announcement of funding cuts affecting several programs and funders. The scale of the planned cuts will result in the termination of existing and future research projects. These follow the Chancellor’s decision to reduce overseas aid spending from 0.7% to 0.5% of gross national income. This was reported in a previous blog post.
The good news is that colleagues within the University have continued to successfully secure research funding including Covid-related funding. Please look out for Research professional broadcasts which are disseminated regularly and contact any member of the Funding team if you are not on the mailing list.
