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)
