Dr Martin Pickard is coming to BU on 23rd and 24th November 2011 to deliver interactive workshops on the preparation of research council applications.
- 23rd November will be focused on social sciences and humanities research council bids.
- 24th November will be focused on applied and natural sciences research council bids, including engineering.
Martin is a specialist in writing and supporting research proposals – in particular European grant applications and tenders – as well as managing projects. He has 25 years experience of writing, supporting and managing literally thousands of research proposals and has worked across Europe with a large number of universities, research institutes, industrial firms and international companies.
Martin came to BU in May last year to deliver a general session on grant writing skills and the feedback he received was excellent:
“I was very impressed by the presentations“,
“I must say it’s a great workshop, which provides us a number of important points we should pay attention to while drafting our proposals.”
“I am confident that I can apply the tips that Martin gave us to significantly improve my chance of grant success.”
Following the workshop, anyone who attended can send Martin their draft application for a personal review and some feedback.
Sessions are free and available to all staff. Places are limited so need to be booked in advance. For further information or to book a place please contact Susan Dowdle.
