Mid-Career Grant Writing Retreat
Opportunities for ecologists to develop their grant writing skills for the bigger £250,000 + grants
Applying for your first large research grant?
Building on the success of our 2017 retreat, we are delighted to announce that we will once more be hosting a grant writing retreat for mid-career ecologists at Chicheley Hall, near Milton Keynes
Our retreat is designed to offer up to 25 people the chance to work with peer groups, supported by workshop facilitators and guest speakers with successful experience across a range of funding bodies and types including NERC, BBSRC, ERC and Leverhulme and others.
Our programme, which can be downloaded here, considers the key areas of most grant applications, builds on the highlights and feedback of previous events to best meet the needs of researchers. We ask all those attending to share ideas, suggestions and act as critical friends in a confidential and supportive space.
Our Top Tips were drafted at the end of the 2017 event
