When you’ve decided to apply to a funding opportunity, you need to use one of these services to submit your application:
- UKRI Funding Service
- Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system
- Innovation Funding Service (IFS)
UKRI Funding Service is a new service replacing Je-S. For information on how we are transitioning away from Je-S, start with our pathway for change.
Innovation Funding Service is for opportunities from Innovate UK.
Research England has other funding processes, detailed in their guidance.
