The Research Office is running a series of workshops on finding funding for research, bid writing and bid development, as part of the Researcher Development Programme 2017-18.
Finding Funding for Research and Knowledge Exchange – Karen Dobson
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, alongside the University of Worcester’s own research funding schemes and processes. It will be of use to those unfamiliar with the research funding landscape and also to researchers planning to make their first funding bid.

Introduction to Bid Writing – John-Paul Wilson and Rishi Verma
This session will identify the major research funders and set out good practice in writing a research funding application, drawing on guidance provided for example by the Research Councils and the experiences of staff who have written both successful and unsuccessful funding bids. This session will be useful for all those considering making an application for research funding.

Developing Your Bid – Rishi Verma
For those in the process of scoping a project with the intention to submit a bid – or whom have formed their research ideas in full to have started an application, having already identified a call, this session highlights key aspects for applicants to consider in terms of bid development, and the University’s role in the crafting, refining and submission of each bid. This workshop covers topics, including the internal approvals process to resource justification, enabling researchers to take into account key considerations to aid qualitative, viable and timely submissions to various research funders.
