Mrs Amaia Fernandez

Research and Development Officer (Funding)



My role as the Research and Development Officer (Funding) consists in identifying funding opportunities and partnerships for the University. I support all departments and staff in bidding for external funding, mainly from the European Commission, proactively supporting collaborative research and academic development projects across the University.

I also provide comprehensive support in the preparation of bids and management of projects post-award, both across the University and across the partnerships and networks with which we work.

In addition, I establish links with local, regional, national and international funding bodies, and liaise with my counterparts in other organisations and universities.
