Research Professional

Business owner: Research Services Division

Research Professional is a database of funding opportunities in all disciplines from a wide range of sponsors in Australia and overseas.

All funding opportunities in the database are eligibility verified for Australian research. It allows you to create searches, save them, set up alerts for new funding opportunities based on key words and deadlines and add them to your calendar. However it also allows you to easily access funding information without setting up a personal account profile, as long as you are accessing the web page from an ANU on-campus computer.

Accessing Research Professional

Generic access (no log-in required) - on campus only From any computer within the University network, you can start searching directly by going to Research Professional. However, to manage your searches more effectively, or access the database from off-campus, a personal account is required.

Personal account registered access - on and off campus University staff and students with an @anu.edu.au email address can request personal account access to Research Professional via the 'Register' link at the top of the Research Professional home page. Please note that you must register from an ANU on-campus computer. Following registration you will be able to log-in from anywhere, but the initial registration must be from an ANU on-campus computer.

This allows:

  • use of the database from any computer in any location
  • customised email alerts that will flag funding opportunities
  • saving search results and re-running them later.

If you believe an account has not been created for you, feel free to access Research Professional from within the ANU, or register and go to the ANU Research Professional Helpdesk for assistance.
