PHIND September 2022 cannot be applied for on our Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system. It is one of the opportunities being run on the new UKRI Funding Service.

Following the success of a number of opportunities recently run through the funding service, many organizations’ research offices will now have members with access to a UKRI Funding Service account with administrator status. This gives them oversight of any application to UKRI from the moment it is created.

Finished applications must be sent to a research officer with a UKRI Funding Service account as only they can submit them to UKRI.

If an application for PHIND September 2022 is started by someone from an organization that doesn’t have a research officer with a UKRI Funding Service account, we will contact their research office to set one up.

You should also ensure that internal deadlines to check applications are made clear to applicants from your organization, well in advance of the submission deadline, which is 16:00 on 15 September 2022.
