Institutions that we report on include the UK research councils, Innovate UK, the higher education funding councils and the major research charities.

We track research in industry as well as the work of professional societies, trade unions and lobby groups. We also cover research, policy and funding in the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Research Fortnight also contains listings of funding opportunities across every research discipline. We continuously check and work with all known and new sponsors for updates on new calls and award information, including funding opportunity deadlines.
