Contestable Funding

The UniServices Funds Advisor Team supports University researchers to compete and succeed in securing national and international contestable funding.

 While supporting applications to more than 170 funding schemes, the team makes a major commitment to the funds managed by the Health Research Council, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) Endeavour Fund and Royal Society Te Apārangi.

By providing advice and support to researchers and their faculties about funding rounds, the team aims to ensure that applications submitted are of high quality and meet all eligibility criteria.

The team covers five portfolios: Science and Innovation, Fundamental, Health, National Research Collaboration and International. More information can be found on ResearchHub (requires login):
