Early career researcher training: Collaborations, networks and strategy

10 August 2012

A major grant application is like an examination where you must score 100% - but then still might not pass. Why are some people so often successful in their grant applications? Are they better researchers (perhaps they are), or just better at communicating their ideas to a highly critical audience? Are there some simple skills that can be learnt to maximise our chance of success in grant applications?

Topics will include:

  • The grant process
  • What grants are available to arts researchers including grants from small granting bodies?
  • What support is available once you are successful?
  • Tips for success
  • "Traps for young players"
  • How to work most effectively with the Research Portfolio

Presenters: Associate Professor Jennifer Milam and Professor Margaret Harris
