Funding Opportunities

Programme & Projects

The Office of the Deputy President (Research & Technology), or ODPRT, administers over 100 research grant programmes. These grant programmes are supported from internal and/or external sources and offer research funding on competitive and non-competitive bases.

The ODPRT Research Grant Programme Call Calendar provides an overview of grant call dates associated with grant programmes administered by ODPRT. The dates are indicative and may be subject to change. Principal Investigators and researchers interested in submitting an application to any of these programmes should refer to the ODPRT Research Grant Programme Call Schedule for actual programme call dates and further information on application procedure. This schedule is regularly updated with the latest grant call information.

Not all externally-funded research activites are supported through grant programmes. Researchers may, from time-to-time, be invited by industry to perform consultation work or commissioned work. Regardless of the channel in which the support is extended, researchers who intend to collaborate or receive funding from external parties must ensure that the necessary approvals and documentations are drawn up.
