Researcher Portal
Research Professional

Research Professional provides a searchable database of global funding opportunities across all disciplines. All funding opportunities returned by the search tool have been checked by the service provider for eligibility so researchers based in an Irish university should be eligible to apply for any of the funding opportunities listed. Funding Opportunities can be searched by a number of criteria including Discipline, Award Type, Funder, Date or a full text search. The system is set up for automatic access from within the UL campus. In addition, you can create your own account on the system to allow you to access the site from off campus, save searches that you create and also to set e-mail alerts to receive notification of new funding opportunities that meet your search criteria. Below, you will find a link to the system itself and also links to the getting started guide and brief videos that will show you each part of the system in more detail. If you have any problems accessing the system or if you have any queries or feedback please contact
