Writing an effective research funding proposal
  • Plymouth University

Save event

This session will focus on writing an effective research funding proposal.

Facilitator: Susan Ann Eick. 

Some of the points covered include:

  • Alignment to call topic 
  • Alignment to evaluation criteria across Research Council requirements 
  • Concise, coherent, precise writing style – less is often more! 
  • Pitch proposal to the correct level – the evaluator will have some knowledge but often not as expert as the writer 
  • Regard as a “sales proposal” – need to highlight the NEED and BENEFITS at many levels, not just the scientific excellence

The venue will be confirmed on booking. NB: a session may change nearer the time but attendees will be notified.
