Addressing Impact in Research Proposals

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 aims to give an understanding of the concept of impact and measures to use in order to maximize it. Workshop participants are encouraged to bring their own research project ideas for discussion during the workshop.

Increasingly research funders require careful presentation of the potential beneficial impacts of the proposed research project in order for a grant to be given. This is especially the case in the European Framework Programme Horizon 2020. For many researchers this poses something of a challenge as this means considering influences outside the domain of research.

This workshop will address this topic using examples from successful proposals, show strategies on how to approach this and tactics from a variety of project types, funding sources and stages of research maturity.

Methods

The workshop will consist of lectures, discussions and exercises. Exercises will focus on the writing of the proposal, e.g. structuring the proposal, preparing templates to organise the writing process for individual proposers as well as for collaborative proposals and conceiving a convincing chapter on the impact. Participants are encouraged to bring along their own examples for discussion.

The workshop is designed for researchers intending to apply for public funding, but may also be useful for funding advisors who need to know about the practical side to proposal preparation.
