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 wish to have an administrator account should contact email@example.com.
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:
- NERC Large Grant to Tackle Big Environmental Science Questions. Opening date 6 December, outline closing date 8 March 2022.
- BBSRC Follow on fund and Super Follow on Fund. Opening date 27 January, closing date 16 March 2022.
