Ethical Issues in information and communication technology (ICT) research & development

Increasing attention is being paid to ethical issues relating to ICT development. All projects submitted to Horizon 2020 must respect fundamental ethical principles in order to be funded though these may not be so obvious for many engaged in ICT. This workshop aims to introduce the topic of ethics to ICT practitioners, explaining what the issues are and through the use of case studies show what some of the pitfalls might be in the case of advanced technology and applications development.

The workshop is particularly suitable for those whose work is likely to be subjected to ethical review. This includes researchers, research managers involved in ICT and especially those who are applying for funding from the European Commission.

Target group:                             Reearchers and research managers in ICT

Duration:                                   1 day

Language:                                 English

Skills training on networking

In a global world personal contacts become more important. Knowing and being known to a wide range of people provides substantially more opportunities to carry out top level research and win grants. This workshop will serve to convey strategies for developing effective personal networks and to explore how to approach people from organisations outside your own.

Target group:                             early-stage researchers, e.g. PhD candidates or post docs.

Duration:                                   1 day (or 0,5 days in combination with Lobbying)

Language:                                 English

How to get topics into the work programme – Lobbying in national and international research

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. This workshop will have a particular focus on the Framework Programme – both existing and forthcoming.

The workshop is designed for researchers who wish to understand more about the current policies towards formation of research programmes.

Target group:                             Those whose job it is to support researchers.

Duration:                                   1 days (or 0,5 days in combination with Networking)

Language:                                 English

Train the trainer: How to support researchers in grant acquisition, project management and exploitation

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. It will examine the role of the research support manager, how to perform this role effectively, juggle the many demands and look at the possibilities for personal development and advancement.

The workshop is designed for those whose job it is to advise researchers on how to get grants.

Target group:                             Those whose job it is to support researchers.

Duration:                                   2 days

Language:                                 English

Management of Collaborative Research Projects

This classic workshop has been delivered in various forms for well over a decade, but remains extremely popular as a hands-on introduction to the art of managing multi-disciplinary, multi-organisational research projects. The Framework Programme is used as a model, but the approach is applicable to multi-partner projects. It is targeted at researchers and management support staff who may find themselves in a management role, but also those who perhaps just need to know about what management involves. This workshop is also suitable as a complementary skills course in project management for young researchers.

Target group:                             researchers and support staff with little previous experience of project management. Can be delivered in a form tailored to PhD students as part of a complementary skills programme.

Duration:                                   1 – 2 days

Language:                                 English

Get funded! English for Grant Writing

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. Participants will learn how to identify good models and develop effective writing strategies to target an interdisciplinary readership and put their message across in English. Participants will be introduced to the ‘grammar-free’ portfolio approach to developing their writing skills, followed by a ‘hands-on’ practice session.

Target group:                             Those who wish to improve their ability to write research proposals in English. The level of English should be intermediate or above.

Duration:                                   1 day

Language:                                 English

How to Prepare a Winning Proposal in Horizon 2020

This workshop is a version of the above more specifically focussed on developing proposals for collaborative projects in Horizon 2020.

Target group:                             Those whose who are interested in applying for funding in Horizon 2020.

Duration:                                   1 day

Language:                                 English
