The list of currently open restricted calls is below. The link will take you to a copy of our circulation email (if asked to log-in, please use Raven details), the Research Professional database of funding opportunities, or the funder website where you can find further information about the call. For calls hosted on Research Professional, please refer to the annotations at the side/bottom of the page for the information on the procedure and deadlines for internal selection.

For most restricted calls, departments can submit internal applications directly to the RSO. Some calls require School-level input, so the Schools are invited to run their own internal sifting process prior to submission to the RSO – these calls are listed in their own separate table below for ease of reference. 

Departments submit to RSO for the following calls:
