About Research Fortnight

Research Fortnight is the only UK publication that connects research to funding and policymaking. Our subscribers include researchers from all levels, politicians and policymakers. Read Research Fortnight to get an inside track on the people and institutions who are involved in funding and policy decisions, and to stay abreast of how knowledge and learning is affecting the people, the economy and the environment in the UK.

Our team of reporters and analysts closely scrutinises UK research funding agencies, as well as the use of research in parliament and in policymaking. We continuously check and work with all known and new sponsors for updates on new calls and award information, including funding opportunity deadlines. We enter the information into our comprehensive online database, keeping it up-to-date and relevant for our subscribers. Institutions that we report on include the seven UK research councils, the Technology Strategy Board, government departments, the higher education funding councils and the major research charities. We track research in industry as well as the work of professional societies, trade unions and lobby groups. We also cover research, policy and funding in the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Research Fortnight also contains hundreds of research vacancies across the UK and Ireland, putting you in touch with the latest jobs in academic research and policy management. Subscribing to our job alerts service allows you to access an outline of the relevant contact details and application information for a wide range of UK research jobs.
