Grants Factory 2010

Today we announced a new programme of events to support all staff applying for research funding. This will be led by a group of senior academics with extensive experience in winning funding, sitting on grant committees and coaching colleagues. The programme includes master classes, practical workshops and mock panel events, as follows:

Master Classes: what the guidance doesn’t tell you
Keynes, LT3 2.00-3.00pm

Grants Factory Workshops: the grant-writer’s toolkit
Led by Prof. David Shemmings

  • Mon 8 Feb: Grimond Seminar Room 8, 9.30am-12.00
  • Tues 9 March: Keynes Seminar Room 5, 1.30-4.00pm
  • Wed 26 May: Rutherford Seminar Room 5, 1.30-4.00pm

Peer Review Panels: test drive your project

Each of these lunchtime events takes less than 90 minutes, needs no advance preparation and will be led by senior academics with experience of the relevant funding panel.

  • EPSRC: Prof Peter Clarkson and Prof. Simon Thompson
  • Wellcome/MRC/NHS (biomedical & experimental psychology): Prof. Mick Tuite
  • BBSRC/NERC (biology, ecology & conservation sciences): Prof. Peter Bennett
  • ESRC/BA/Nuffield: Prof Dominic Abrams and Prof. Peter Taylor-Gooby
