Event Description:
Grant factory: Writing styles for grants

Facilitated by: Dr Gráinne Barkess and Nina Hakanpaa, RIO
Events run from Jan 2017 – July 2017

A series of linked events designed to help staff develop their understanding of bidding for research funding and giving them support while developing bids

If you are interested in bidding for external funds to support your research then think about signing up to our Grant factory. We would encourage you to come along to all the sessions if you can as they are designed to build up your understanding of the process as you go through. If you cannot make them all, you are welcome to register for those that seem most relevant.

Research needs income to support it and bidding for this can be a stressful and time-consuming process. In this series of sessions we will look at how as a researcher at any level you can be developing a strategy to help fund your research. The sessions will include time for you to work on aspects of a proposal, and will include opportunities to engage with academics who have been successful in gaining funding in the past to help share expertise.

Over the course of the Grant Factory we will look at:

• how to identify sources of funding
• what funders are looking for
• developing your case for support
• writing styles for grants
• building an impact case study
• the support processes at ENU
• building collaborations and networks

At the end of the series participants will be encouraged to develop a grant writing group over the summer to provide peer support and peer review while developing potential bids.

This event maps against the domains B3, C2, and C3 of Vitae's Researcher Development Framework (https://www.vitae.ac.uk/researchers-professional-development/about-the-vitae-researcher-development-framework).
