- Dates: Thursday, 3 March 2022
- Duration: 2 online modules, 09:00-12:30h and 14:00-17:30h
- Location: The workshop will take place online
- Trainer: Dr. John Dixon
- Registration: Please register here (in case you are not yet registered) and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including a short statement on your motivation to attend the workshop.
In two modules, we cover the following:
- the nature of this unique challenge and ‘grantsmanship’
- a typical application process
- who are reviewers and decision makers
- four cornerstones of a good application (the research question, credibility, likelihood of success, value for money)
- four attributes (being persuasive, complete, readable and correct)
Before and during the workshop, you will have the chance to use a template to develop the rationale for your research project. The abstract is a critical component of a grant application, and we critique some abstracts to establish the composition and style of an effective abstract. After the workshop, you have the opportunity to write a grant application abstract and email it to the trainer, who will give you feedback. Communication will be strictly confidential.
We use the Zoom platform, and this workshop comprises short lectures, exercises, brainstorming in breakout rooms and an open invitation to ask questions, express opinion and share experiences.
