Events

Training

Research, Enterprise and Development run several different types of training and information sessions.  This section covers those provided by the Research Development and the Knowledge Exchange Teams at a faculty and university level. We also provide ad-hoc sessions and events for schools as requested (these are promoted directly in schools.

The types of training we offer include:

  • Overviews of postdoctoral funding opportunities
  • Training on writing good grant proposals
  • Sessions on impact and developing partnerships
  • Grant Writing Retreats
  • Training targeted at Early Career Researchers
  • Interview training (invite-only, for those with short-listed applications with this stage)
  • Mock Panels replicating funder decision making

Some areas also offer regular drop-in sessions where you can pop along and ask questions about research funding. We also co-deliver training with other teams as appropriate.
