Funding USA

Issued: Tue, 31 May 2016 12:05:00 BST

An interactive workshop on US federal funding opportunities for international researchers.

  • Date: Friday 10 June 2016
  • Time: 10am – 14pm
  • Venue: University of Glasgow: Sir Charles Wilson Building, University Avenue, Glasgow.
  • Registration: Closes 5pm, Wednesday 8 June

This event, hosted by Glasgow University’s EU and International Research Support Team and part-funded by EARMA (the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators), will focus on US funders which award research grants directly to non-US institutions and is intended primarily for researcher support staff but will also be of interest to PIs.

The objectives of the workshop are to provide you with:

  • an overview of the US Federal Research Funding landscape, focussing on:

- National Institutes of Health (NIH)
- National Science Foundation (NSF)
- Department of Defense (DoD)

  • an insight to the pre-application stage (funder registration processes and pre-requisites such as ethics review and research integrity systems/processes)
  • guidance on finding suitable funding opportunities (front & back door approaches)
  • instruction on the application processes and format of the main funders
  • proposal writing tips (in the context of US federal funding)

Robert Porter, PhD, has presented grant writing workshops at leading universities and medical schools internationally. A leader in the growing field of research development, he has presented papers and workshops on grant writing at national conferences and has published prize-winning articles in the Journal of Research Administration and Research Management Review.
