Research funding and support

As a researcher at Uppsala University, you can get support regarding research funding.

At the Research Support Unit at the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy, we can help you when you apply, administer, and report your research grants. We can also act as a link between researchers and management for those issues that require prioritisation and decisions at management level.

Read more about research funding at the Staff Portal.


Research Professional (RP) is an international funding database where you can search for calls and other funding opportunities. You can also register an account and receive news notifications in your research area.

On the Staff Portal you can read how to search the database and register to get the most out of it. Research Professional also offers webinars.

UU specific training sessions

RP is now arranging two online training sessions for Uppsala University researchers on how to effectively use the service. These will e.g. include how to personalise your profile to receive the most relevant opportunities and news in your field, and how to save or share contents from the website.
To attend any of the sessions, please register your interest using the links below:

If you have any questions about the webinars, please contact
