January 2018 Research Funding and Intellectual Property Rights Workshops
Finding Funding for Research
Description: If you’re looking for funding to support research and knowledge exchange activities this session will help you to navigate the opportunities available. The session aims to enable you to be pro-active and reactive to established and new funding opportunities and provides an overview of research funding in the UK. Key research funders, and the activities they fund are highlighted. It will be of use to those unfamiliar with the research funding landscape and also to researchers planning to make their first funding bid.

Using Research Professional to Find Funding for Research
Description: This session will be run by Greg Clarke of Research Professional. Every University of Worcester staff member can access Research Professional’s online database of current research funding opportunities for free. This session is aimed at both those who don’t already use Research Professional, and those who are registered with Research Professional, but who would like to know how to use the database and email alert system more effectively. You will have access to a computer during the session, which will cover registering with Research Professional, searching the database effectively, saving searches and setting up email alerts, and how to use the Our Institution and Group pages. The last 30 minutes of the session is time for you to ask Greg questions and set up your own searches with support from Greg and Karen Dobson.
Introduction to Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)
Description: This session will provide a basic overview of the nature of Intellectual Property Rights when engaging in externally funded research projects or unfunded collaborative projects. This session will be useful for all colleagues who are currently engaged in research projects or who are interested in doing so in the future.
