Presented by Dr David Farrugia

Join this online seminar via Zoom: https://uonewcastle.zoom.us/j/83692733596

This online seminar will

  • Make a case for grant writing as a unique academic task
  • Consider the differences between fellowship and project proposals
  • Suggest how to conceptualise issues for grant proposals

David will discuss what grant writing is and why it is unlike any other academic form of writing including the thesis. Having been awarded funding by the ARC for a DECRA and a Discovery Project, David will discuss how to prepare the project description by leading with the problem and what the key terms of innovation, significance and benefit mean. He is passionate about sharing what he has learnt with early career researchers and those who guide and review draft proposals.

For: ECRs, mentors of ECRs and others advising ECRs on planning and writing grant proposals
