For the latest funding opportunities: UCL colleagues are encouraged to sign up for the Research Strategy Forum mailing list at The BEAMS research facilitators produce a document each month detailing the funding opportunities that are currently available. These will appear here.

Funding Opportunities August 2011 media:BEAMS Sucesses and Opportunities - August 2011 (2).pdf.

The EPSRC have changed the way they are funding Fellowships. Please see the Faculty of Engineering for more details. Matt Davies, research facilitator for BEAMS, gave a very informative presentation on the changes the EPSRC have introduced. Please follow the links below.
