In accordance with the provisions of the University Research Policy, the Research and Publications Unit manages a Research Budget to fund research projects. Funds are annually allocated competitively and disbursed in accordance with programmes of activities of researchers. The University also encourages the sourcing of funds from external donors, and the Research and Publications Unit offers advisory services on this. Calls for funding opportunities are regularly distributed to UNAM academics by the Research and Publications Unit as and when they are published. Regular engagements with potential funders are held in order to optimise funding opportunities for our researchers.
