The competition for research grants is getting fiercer by the day. Although this varies considerably by discipline and funder, success rates of 10 to 20 percent are not uncommon. To increase your chances of success, it is imperative that you clearly convey the rationale, approach, and significance of the proposed research. This, in turn, requires understanding and responding to the funder’s expectations and evaluation criteria. This interactive session will provide top-level advice for developing a compelling research grant proposal. Using some examples, it will focus on achieving a clear narrative and an effective structure. The session is suitable for researchers at all levels, but those early in their careers are especially welcome to attend. Feel free to bring along a proposal that you are working on or even simply an idea that you would like to crystallize!
