The team acts as a link to University-level teams and support, including:
Research Funding is complex and the funding landscape changes continually. We work with colleagues across the university to stay abreast of these changes. We can support you in the process of identifying funding, writing and submitting a research proposal.
The underlying principle for the Research Research Funding Development team is to give colleagues the best chance to focus on their idea, not the application.
We support academics in sourcing and applying for research funding from UK funders by:
- helping researchers define their research funding strategy
- helping researchers identify appropriate sources of research funding to develop their research portfolio
- providing training and support on all aspects of the proposal-writing process
- organising internal peer-review processes in line with RCUK Demand Management policy
- convening mock interview panels for researchers invited to interview
- assisting with pre-award project-management of large and complex proposals from inception through to submission
For EU and international funding we draw on support from the University's EU and International Research Team.

Research ethics can be defined as a set of moral principles guiding research from its inception through to completion and publication of results.
Ensuring that our research and its outputs meets the highest ethical standards is one of the ways in which Newcastle University demonstrates its commitment to research excellence.
The University’s Ethics Policy states that all staff and students planning to undertake research must apply for ethical approval before work on the project begins.
The purpose of ethical review is to consider what might, could or potentially happen as a result of the research; and to weigh those risks against the perceived scientific benefits.
The Faculty Ethics Committee is responsible for reviewing and making decisions on our staff and students’ projects.
The committee is chaired by the Dean of Research and Innovation and is supported by the Faculty Research Administrator. To ensure a broad spread of expertise and ownership for implementation, the other Committee members include academic representatives from each School as well as the Deans of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Studies.
