Grants Factory Workshops 2014-15

This year marks the fifth anniversary of the award winning Grants Factory programme.

The Grants Factory provides academics and researchers with the inside knowledge on how funders work and what makes them tick. As a result, those who attend have a much better chance of success.

The programme speakers are colleagues from Kent and elsewhere, including those who work as reviewers, panellists, and officers for the funders. These workshops are complemented by the Early Career Research Network.
