What to do next:

If you see a call that fits your work, check it out in more detail on the Participant Portal. Colleagues in RIDO can help you use the Portal and understand what you'll need to achieve before you can put in a strong bid. If there are no calls in your area in 2018, don't despair, more should some along in 2019, many deadlines for which are already known. Try searching for the relevant Work Programme part to get an idea of what's coming in 2019, and start talking to your networks now!

Do remember to also check out the excellent resources on the UKRO page, including updates on Brexit and factsheets on all the EU funding options.
