A Biochemical Society Event
Applying for grants can be a complicated process for any researcher, but it's even more challenging for early career academics. Many grants today require additional support from third parties, including industry, and it is important that the outcome from the research has a relevance to the industrial partner.
This training event aims to equip participants with the best practices for grants writing in collaboration with industry, and designing a good commercialization plan for scientific research. The event will include hands-on sessions in which delegates will be able to discuss examples of grants applications, talks from professionals who successfully commercialized their scientific research, and how to engage industry support. Speakers are from academia, industry and funding bodies.
- The national and international funding landscape
- Writing successful grant applications
- Working with industry - perspectives from both sides
- Commercialising your research
To equip participants with the best practices for collaborative grant writing, working with industry and designing a good commercialisation plan.
At the end of this event, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge of available funding
- Understand what makes a good grant proposal
- Appreciate some differences between applying for Research Council funding and commercial funding
- Have an appreciation of the importance of intellectual property protection (vs publication)
