Whether or not money is available to fund a research topic depends very much on it being known to those who decide how research budgets should be spent. This workshop provides researchers with the chance to reflect on the way research programmes are formed, especially at the European level and show how to influence the content of programmes and calls.
Research management support has become an important function in its own right, but there is little formal training that can prepare people for this important service function. The purpose of this workshop is to share experience.
Winning research funding is a competitive business. With much funding now targeted at international cooperation, the ability to write effectively and convincingly in English is a requirement of any researcher. This workshop is designed to help those who do not have English as their native language, improve their ability to write research proposals especially for European funding programmes.
The continuity of research funding often makes or breaks a research career at the postdoctoral stage. As institutional core funding diminishes and external funding becomes more and more competitive, how do you build your resources systematically and mitigate the risk of gaps in funding? This workshop explores the concept of strategy in the research context in order to identify, select and exploit funding opportunities more effectively.
The expected impact of a proposed research project becomes more and more essential in many grant applications. In order to be successful with their proposal applicants need to analyze and describe the impact of their work convincingly.
This workshop is a version of ‘Grant Acquisition – How to write a winning proposal’ more specifically focussed on developing proposals for collaborative projects in Horizon 2020. The workshop is conceived for researchers wishing to learn about the principles of developing multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects.
Responding to the ever increasing demand for complementary skills training for those starting their research career, ReMaT is an intensive two-day workshop comprising of five modules which introduces students to research management topics and skills now considered essential for a career in research, or to make the transition from research into other functions.
