Cornwallis Seminar Room 5
The next Grants Factory Masterclass will take place on Thursday 3 February. Prof. Mick Tuite (Biosciences) will talk about the role of the Funding Panel. Mick is an experienced panellist with both research councils (BBSRC) and charities (Wellcome). He is also a highly successful applicant and grant holder. In recent years he has been involved in large scale funded projects from the BBSRC, MRC, Wellcome and European Commission.
Whilst he’s a bioscientist, the way funding panels work is common across all disciplines, and you get the same types of people sitting on them, such as:
- Dr ‘Know it all’: has opinions on all the grants, but actually knows very little;
- Dr ‘Methodical’: knows all the fine detail, but unable to make an informed decision;
- Dr ‘Disorganised’: still reading the applications during the meeting;
All are welcome, but do let me know if you intend to come along.
