Basic steps and principles - Training for Postdocs

Applying for grants is one of the main activities of researchers: always planning for the next funding to keep the research going. Large-scale applications that involve several institutions based in the UK or in the world are the responsibility of senior academic staff. The involvement of Postdocs in this adventure could however be beneficial for the whole team. Postdocs would build confidence in developing collaborative projects and raise their profile while working closely with senior staff.

This first session will present an overview of the process and its basic principles. More detailed sessions will be available on demand.

Programme Objectives:

After attending the training we expect that attendees will:

  • understand better the funding landscape (beyond Fellowships)
  • be able to understand the multi-partner application process with its related aspects and requirements
  • feel more confident to support senior staff with large projects
