For the latest advice and guidance for grant holders during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic please see the dedicated COVID-19 advice for grant holders page.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted the OU and wider research community causing major interruption to active research projects and will pose new challenges for recipients of recently awarded grants, who will have to transition to a new way of working during these unprecedented times. The Research, Enterprise and Scholarship Unit (RES) understand that these times can be unsettling, involving many difficult decisions regarding the management of research grant and projects.
This page has been setup to summarise the ever change funding landscape as the pandemic evolves, provide advice and support to grant holders during these difficult times and, assist grant holders to understand the best options available for their projects. The page will be updated periodically to capture the latest information.
For advice and support for individual projects please contact your faculty research management teams.
