Developing a strategic plan for funding your research
The workshop explores the concept of strategy in the research funding context. Having a clear idea of your research direction facilitates aligning even small projects to larger goals, making individual proposals more compelling. It will also help to avoid the trap of letting funding dictate your research focus.
The aim of the workshop is to provide guidance on how to approach key funding issues in the individual research setting. Participants will learn how to apply elements of strategy to develop their research agenda, identify a portfolio of funding opportunities to be pursued in the coming years and manage the grant life cycle effectively to build the resources and capabilities necessary to do independent research.
This workshop is designed for postdoctoral researchers with typically one to three years of research experience after the PhD preparing to set up their own research group.
It is limited to 15 participants and will be presented in English.
