Research managers and administrators can play a key role in supporting academics in raising the quality of their research proposals by providing advice and guidance on how funders make funding decisions and by facilitating and contributing to internal review throughout the application process.
Research funding is much more likely to be secured when the quality of the research application is demonstrable. Additionally Research Councils and other funders are increasingly urging universities to submit fewer research proposals of higher quality, with sanctions being put in place for those that don’t comply!
This workshop will be delivered via a combination of presentation, case studies and discussion. The morning session will comprise several case studies, to illustrate different institutional and departmental approaches to internal review.
In the afternoon the focus will turn to developing an Internal Review System and participants will be given the opportunity to explore and discuss in relation to their own institutional practice.
By the end of the workshop, participants will:
- Understand why raising the quality of research proposals is important
- Appreciate the roles that the academic, research manager and administrator and the institution play in the process
- Have knowledge of several different approaches to internal peer review and feedback
- Have had the opportunity to discuss challenges and issues in their own institutional practice
This workshop is aimed at research managers who support the development of research proposals at either central or departmental / faculty level.
