Target Audience: Academic Staff Members in Faculty of Science

An often overlooked but crucial part of the grant application process happens after a research bid has been submitted.  Understanding the peer review process better will maximise your opportunity for grant success.  Join us for an information session on EPSRC grant panel review process and how to produce a strong grant rebuttal / PI response document.


The session will cover:

·         The EPSRC grant review process;

·         What makes a good grant rebuttal document – and what does not;

·         Insight and advice from Strathclyde Faculty of Science panel review members;

·         Take views from the audience on how we might better support researchers at this stage of the grant application process


Speakers will be: Dr Alison Robinson (RKES); Prof Yvonne Perrie (Deputy VDR); Prof Duncan Graham (PAC, EPSRC prioritisation panel member and strategic advisory board member); 1 other TBC
