Transformative Consumer Research


External research funding is made available by various entities, including governments (via national research agencies), private foundations, and corporate and non-profit organizations.


The operation of these programs can vary significantly, with some funders using rolling application windows for ongoing schemes (e.g., ‘Small Research Grants’), calls without specific deadlines, topical schemes launched on a ‘needs’ basis (e.g., ‘Ethical Use of AI’), and even rapid funding calls for urgent topics (e.g., COVID 19).


Your university’s research support office can save you considerable time by assisting you in locating and evaluating funding options. Moreover, the office might provide valuable general information, such as identifying grants with “internal competitions” (some grants may require an internal application and selection process). In addition, you can search for and sign up for notifications about upcoming external funding opportunities through searchable databases, which may be available via subscription through your university.
