“Teaming and Twinning calls” event

The European Commission will soon launch the next “Teaming and Twinning calls” within the Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation strand of Horizon 2020, which aims to increase the participation rate of low performing countries through a series of initiatives. The Research Office and International Strategy Office will be hosting an event to present the Twinning call and proposal process.  There will also be an opportunity to discuss individual projects at the end of the session but please state this when booking a place. Further information and registration can be found on the ROO website.

BA/ Leverhulme Small Research Grant applications

The British Academy Small Research Grants deadline is 11 May 2016 (5pm BST). Please note that these grants fall below the value for which ROO undertakes routine checks. Therefore, before submitting an application we strongly advise you to refer to  


UFS Grants Invoices

The invoicing process from UFS Grants has been developed and improved and will be released in to the live system on Tuesday, 19th April 2016.  One of the improvements is the facility for the grants module to automatically attach an expenditure breakdown to invoices if required.  We therefore ask that you carefully consider this when entering invoice information on to UFS.  It is essential to enter meaningful item descriptions as this may now be sent straight to grant sponsors.


Please also remember that other costs must be posted to other costs and travel costs to travel etc.  If you come across any errors or find you are unable to do so please contact your ROO Research Support Advisor who will be able to assist with correcting this.
