The Funding Service - UKRI
UKRI will be replacing the current Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system for applications over the coming years. Je-S will be replaced by The Funding Service (TFS). The pilot of TFS began in summer 2020 and the number of UKRI calls using TFS will slowly be increased over time.
The aim of TFS is to make applying for and managing research simpler and more streamlined. Further information on TFS can be found here.
Researchers can create their own accounts on TFS by clicking on a call in the pilot and pressing the start application button. All current UKRI calls can be found on the funding finder here. Research Services staff who contact The Funding Service for an administrator account should also copy in firstname.lastname@example.org when they make their account request. This will allow the central research Services Team to approve the request on behalf of the University.
The UKRI Research Office Administrator webinar from 8th December 2021 that illustrates what The Funding System can and can't do at the moment and answer some of the common questions can be accessed here.
Details of all the current pilot opportunities utilising TFS are:
- AHRC and ESRC International fellowships for doctoral and early career researchers. Closing date: 23rd February 2023.
- NERC Addressing environmental challenges. Closing date 22nd March 2023.
