Be brave, ask, and keep trying – a guide to what to consider when looking for funding for third sector collaborative research

This guide is for third sector organisations (TSO) that want to obtain funding for collaborative research with academia. It may also be useful to academics working in universities and colleges, and funders.

It gives ideas to consider when looking for funding for collaborative research and includes some hints and tips from those who have been successful and unsuccessful in applying for funding. However, this is NOT a guide about how to apply for funding.
