Actions and Detail Panel
Writing Research Funding Proposals
Tue 4 April 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
For all University of Portsmouth Research and Academic Staff
*Recommended for staff with an established research profile*
Prof. Andrew Derrington, an experienced academic and researcher who has sat on many funding panels will be leading this workshop. During the workshop, Andrew gives insights into how to write your proposal so that it has the best chance of making it through the rough and tumble of the funding panel decision process. Andrew will lead participants through the approach he uses to efficiently write a research project grant, such as a Research Council standard grant, based on writing 10 key sentences that form a draft skeleton of the case for support. To attend this workshop you need to be ready to talk about the research project that you want to apply for funding for, and also be prepared to write (pen/paper, laptop/tablet).
This workshop will enable you to:
Understand what makes a strong case for support
Understand how funders make decisions
Lunch will be provided.
