|Events||2017 13 to 14 March: AWRN, Birmingham, UK|
Monday 13th March – Grant Writing and Reviewing Workshop (BBSRC-funded)
The purpose of the workshop is to provide training on reviewing grants, sitting on a research committee and writing successful grant applications. The morning consists of talks and discussion panels on topics such as “Reviewing grants” and “Dealing with unsuccessful applications practically and psychologically”. In the afternoon there will be mock BBSRC committee panels at which delegates will be expected to present a real grant, which they will have had the opportunity to review beforehand. We anticipate that this workshop will be useful whether you are already writing grants or not.
The workshop will include lunch and a drinks reception and will be followed by an evening meal.
