UCCRI Research Support Service

UCCRI can provide various research support to academics and graduates working conservation research across the University.

Please email to get in touch about any of the items below. 

Peer reviews for proposals

This is a service for researchers to discuss their grant proposals so they can be provided with an initial peer review and advice before submitting to funders. 

Grant writing workshops

If you would like to set up a workshop specifically related to a conservation related theme, please let us know, and UCCRI would be happy to set this up for you. 

Co-ordinating and facilitating cross-Cambridge bids

Please get in touch with suggestions for collaboration and/or a specific funding opportunity, which UCCRI will facilitate by searching for researchers with similar interests, convening and running meeting(s) and supporting any bids that may arise.

Support for open access publications

UCCRI has developed an agreement with Open Book Publishers, to publish interdisciplinary research on conservation in open access formats. If you have any edited volumes and monographs you would like to see published, please contact us and we would be happy to support the development of your ideas and in discussions with Open Book. 

Public engagement and communications support

UCCRI can provide a public engagement service and liaison with the University to help promote research impact for researchers from within the University’s conservation community. UCCRI works with the Office of External Affairs and Communications and regular participates in the major University festivals. If you would like to set up a conservation-related event, please contact us and we will be in touch to discuss further.

Research Hubs and Workshops

UCCRI regularly hosts specifically themed research workshops,  linking up academics across the University (and, where needed with CCI and other external partners) and following these up with further meetings in an attempt to support funding proposal and research ideas. If you would like to propose a workshop or arrange cross-University bid please get in touch.

Joint events with other University initiatives and networks

UCCRI actively works to raise awareness of conservation by collaborating with other initiatives and networks where there are overlaps. If you would like to explore collaborations within the University, please contact us and we would be happy to help set these up.

Funding Opportunities

UCCRI provides regular online information of current funding opportunities, drawing information from the University Research Strategy Office and Research Professional databases.

We are one of CCI's ten conservation partners based in Cambridge, UK.
