Here are the slides from the Irish launch event on October 28th 2015.
The speakers gave advice on all aspects of the funding process and we’re extremely grateful to them for not just agreeing to support the event, but for also staying for much longer than their presentation slots to answer questions from the audience.
Dr Sara Shinton – overview of the guide and some key points about the process of investigating and understanding the funding landscape (this also includes my examples of 6, 12 and 18 month countdowns to proposals which we didn’t have time to look at on the day).
Dr Fiona Blighe, SFI – overview of the schemes for early career researchers and key points about successful applicants
Dr Sheila McBreen, UCD– advice on building skills, building a funding track record and managing feedback and rejection.
Professor Eugene Kennedy – the view of the reviewer, insights from inside the panel and advice on CV building.
