Write it Right! Grant writing support and self-help group.

Organised by Research and Innovation Services (RIS), these lunchtime support sessions will be held at 1pm for up to 2 hours on the first Wednesday of every month in the Eduzone in the main Library.

These facilitated sessions aim to help participants to develop their grant writing skills. They are mainly aimed at early career researchers and those coming back to grant writing after a break, but all are welcome. The approach will be based on the Andrew Derrington method, in which 10 key sentences are used as the basis for a proposal. The emphasis in these sessions is on peer-to-peer support to help develop ideas, with a focus on writing some of these key sentences. Bring your own proposals along to the session and you will have the chance to review and comment on each other’s applications. This could be a partly written grant or fellowship application, or even just an idea. These will be drop-in sessions, so there is no need to register – please just turn up with your lunch and some good ideas.

Staff from the Research Development Team in RIS will be there to help.

Please email Emma Warbrick to let her know that you plan to attend and she will be able to send useful background information.

If your attendance is registered, these details can be passed to OPD and your time registered as engagement with Professional Development.
