Participating in these sessions will help you understand how your project might fare under panel conditions. All the chairpersons have extensive experience as funding committee members, reviewers and successful applicants.

If you’re planning to have a proposal almost ready for submission around that time then please let me know so that we can anticipate demand for the events. To take part in any but the first of these events could you send me the following (as a minimum) three days before the meeting:

  • 200 word lay summary;
  • (at least) 2 pages of Case for Support (12 pt min, single spaced). This should include some Background to the project and an outline of the Research Programme/Work Plan. No need for preliminary data or references;
  • If possible, a 200 word impact statement

No other advance preparation is required, and there’ll be coffee/tea etc available.
