The way in which your project will be funded is of relevance because it will determine which support service is primarily responsible for assisting you in setting up your study.  The funding source can also affect who will be identified as sponsor for your research.  Your project can either be internally funded or externally funded.

Internal funding means 'own account' or unfunded research.

External funding includes sources outside of the College:

  • Research Councils
  • Government departments
  • The EU
  • Research Charities
  • Universities
  • Pharmaceutical Companies

As part of JRCO review we will check that funding is in place and will require a grant number (P number) or departmental cost code.
