Event Details

Thank you for your interest in attending NIHR RDS South Central's Essential Guide to Grant Applications (EGGA) masterclass.  Please note that we have reached the maximum capacity for attendees on this course and we have therefore had to close registration.  


 

 

Are you thinking of applying for a research grant - National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) or other national, competitive, peer reviewed funding?  Do you have an idea for a health or social care research proposal, but require help with methodological and other aspects of writing a grant application?  If “yes”, then register for our FREE Essential Guide to Grant Applications (EGGA) masterclass! 

What: An interactive, innovative and free to attend, three-day masterclass, funded and hosted by the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) South Central (SC), on how to write a grant application that is strong from a methodological point of view, but one which also reads well and presents a convincing case for funding. 

The course focuses on how to sell your research idea by:

  • writing a convincing application with a good structure, flow and argument;
  • presenting a strong methods section, including statistical, qualitative, health economics and Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) elements as appropriate;
  • producing clear and well thought through Intellectual Property, Management, Governance and other sections.

The course will cover important tips on writing, along with guidance on what reviewers will be looking for (and what they love and hate to see). 

In particular, through a series of presentations with accompanying practical sessions, attendees will learn how to get their research idea across quickly and clearly to reviewers, how to write a good case for support and how to demonstrate credible support. 

One-to-ones will also allow attendees to work through aspects of their own research ideas with our experienced methodologists and facilitators.   

Who should attend: This exciting event will bring together researchers from across the South Central region (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Oxfordshire) who are intending to apply to any NIHR or other national, competitive, peer reviewed funding programme in the next 12 months.
