Preparing Impactful Research Proposals and Grant Applications


This session is delivered as part of by the University of East Anglia (UEA) Online Training Series.

Description

This session will consider the writing of effective research proposals and the best ways to create a compelling ‘case for support’. Coverage will include the generation of a clear rationale, the statement of a defined and delimited set of research aims and questions, the proposal of a study (or series of studies) - as well as appropriate methods and analyses - that will clearly deliver on the stated research aims. Emphasis will be placed throughout on the overriding importance of articulating a relevant and impactful list of outcomes and contributions for the proposed research. The relationship of the basic research proposal or case for support with other sections/elements of a grant application, of the type usually demanded by major funders, will also be considered.
