Over the coming weeks there will be some changes made to the Research Services Bulletin to access the capabilities of Research Professional: a news and funding opportunities service the University has subscribed to for all staff and graduate students (including Honors students).
About the current Bulletin
The current Research Services Bulletin is comprised of a weekly digest of research news, events, and funding opportunities, linking to items published on the Research Services Bulletin blog. Visitors to the blog can search through the archive of current and archived funding opportunities, and filter according to type of funding required, and faculty.
Here’s what will remain the same:
- Subscribers will still receive a weekly email digest with links to news, events, and funding opportunities.
- Links to all news and events, and some funding opportunities (such as internal funding, tenders etc.) will be accessed via the Bulletin blog.
Most funding opportunities advertised in the Bulletin have been identified using Research Professional. In the coming weeks, links from the Bulletin digest will link directly to grants and fellowships housed within the Research Professional service. Funding opportunities will look a bit different, but contain essentially the same information, and will be annotated with internal University submission instructions to assist you with your application.
How does this impact me?
If you are on campus, very little. Links to funding opportunities in Research Professional will not require a login.
Off campus, you will simply need to login to your Research Professional profile to access funding items.
Further Information and support
Research Services will keep researchers and students updated about detailed changes to the Bulletin in the coming weeks.
