2 OCT 2018
ECRs/PhDs joined us at the MASTS-ASM Fri 2 Oct for a workshop all about the changing grant environment and the review process. Talks on ECR funding opportunities were given by NERC (Dr Avril Allman), KTN (Callum Harvey) and SAIC (Caroline Griffin). Advice on grant writing and the changing grant environment were given by Charles Tyler (ARCH-UK Co-I, UofExeter), Ross Houston (ARCH-UK WG 5 Lead, Roslin Institute) and Anton Edwards (ARCH-UK Advisory Board member, UHI). Feedback from the event was very positive, ECRs found the ‘review exercise’ particularly useful, whereby donated grant applications were given a mock review by attendees. Thanks to a crash course in reviewing from Anton Edwards, speakers noted that ECR comments mirrored those of actual reviewers. ARCH-UK would like to thank the WG 8 Team, the speakers and proposal donaters for putting on a great event. Presentations and programme can be found via link above.
