Staff Research Development Day – Monday 16 December

UoL-logo-general-use-white-backgroundThe next University of Lincoln Research Development Day will take place on Monday 16 December in ENG207.

These sessions are open to all academics and research support staff and will concentrate on grant writing skills, networking and Horizon 2020:

1. Grant Writing Skills: the Art of a Strong Proposal – Traps, Tricks and Techniques, 9am – 11:15am

This presentation covers the art of Grantmanship and is designed for all types of grant applications covering the do’s and dont’s when preparing a proposal together with the necessary building blocks, over and above the research context, with which to construct the application.

2. The Importance of Networking and how to be effective, 11:15am – 1:45pm

With an ever increasing emphasis on multi-disciplinarity, impact, dissemination, exploitation and outreach the network structure behind a research bid is an essential component to be competitive. This workshop presents an understanding of these requirements and the basic principles behind the networking process; helping to identify key players and stakeholders as well as how to approach them.

3. Strategic Opportunities Within Horizon 2020 and How to Address them, 2:30pm – 5pm

This session will introduce Horizon 2020 from a strategic position. The session will explain changes from the FP7 programme and provide a background for insights into the substantial opportunities and requirements for a Competitive Horizon 2020 bid.

You are able to attend as many workshops as you would like and there is no preparation necessary for any of the sessions.  To book a place on any of these sessions please email research@lincoln.ac.uk.

EPSRC: ICT Early Career Researcher Workshops

As part of the EPSRC’s commitment to support the development of early career researchers, EPSRC’s Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Theme is inviting expressions of interest from early career ICT researchers to attend one of two workshops that will be held in Oxford and Glasgow in February 2014.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive advice on funding opportunities, strategic priorities, grant writing and the peer review process from EPSRC staff and research leaders in ICT.
  • Engage with EPSRC staff on the development of strategies to benefit UK ICT research.
  • Consider and debate the impact of ICT research and responsible innovation in ICT research.
  • Form new connections with colleagues from across the ICT research landscape.

Each workshop will be residential and run across a two-day period to allow participants sufficient time for in-depth discussions and to maximise networking opportunities.

Overnight accommodation for the first day of the workshop and meals during the workshop will be provided. However, EPSRC is unable to reimburse participant’s travel or other expenses.

TARGET AUDIENCE

We anticipate that this event will be of greatest interest to ICT researchers that have completed a PhD (or equivalent qualification) within the previous ten years and are eligible to hold an EPSRC grant. However, we do not wish to be prescriptive based on years of post-doctoral experience and welcome applications from prospective participants with a different pattern of academic experience, early career researchers based in industry and postdoctoral research assistants.

HOW TO APPLY

Early career ICT researchers wishing to participate in either the Oxford or Glasgow workshop should apply by completing and submitting online, the Expression of Interest form before 16:00 on Friday 3 January 2014.

Submission of a complete expression of interest form will be taken as a commitment that you are available for the entire duration of your preferred workshop and will attend if selected.

SELECTION CRITERIA

Completed expression of interest forms will be assessed by a panel of EPSRC staff. The panel will select participants on the basis of the justification for attendance provided in the completed expression of interest form, while also seeking to ensure the participants are a representative cross-section of the ICT research community by research expertise and institutional representation.

Please note that the number of participants is limited.

Decisions on attendance will be communicated to applicants by email in the week commencing 13 January 2014.
