Funding Alerts and Training


Liverpool John Moores University subscribes to a service provided by

ResearchProfessional to provide staff with detailed, early, alerts to external grant funding opportunities across a comprehensive range of subjects. This service can be accessed by all staff and students at LJMU and we thoroughly recommend its use. can be accessed at two levels:

  • Campus access – this is provided for anyone accessing the system from any LJMU PC or Mac. It provides general access to the research alert site but searches are limited and cannot be saved.
  • Personal account – by registering on the website you can set up tailor-made searches to suite your specific research interests (e.g., based on any combination of key words, dates, countries and funding bodies etc.). In addition to viewing the results of these funding alert searches on-line you can choose to have the search results (of as many searches as you want to set-up) sent to you as a series of regular email alerts. We recommend using this option to get the most from

The service is intuitive and simple to use. Full details of how to make full use of are available through a set of tutorials and as a set of on-line training videos at: 

If you are using the system for the first time then you wll need to log in to access these tutorials.
