The British Academy visit, led by Ken Emond (Head of Research Awards) and Kate Kenyon (International Officer) gave a comprehensive overview of the work of the British Academy, the funding schemes they offer.
The slides are available here:
As part of the presentation, Ken Emond gave some insights into what applicants need to think about when they are writing a proposal. Please bear his advice in mind when writing your proposal!
- Is the project feasible? (both in terms of methodology and time-frame)
- Is the project defined, specific, focused and clearly expressed? (applications will be assessed by non-experts in the field, so keep jargon and unexplained terms to an absolute minimum)
- Is there a defined outcome? (ie: what will you be producing at the end of your research: publication, database etc).
