ERI workshop on Funding opportunities for established researchers - 17 November 2009

As you may know ERI have been running, along with transkills and the Researcher Development Program (Corporate HR), a new set of courses designed to give all researchers at the University of Edinburgh the best possible knowledge of suitable sources of research funding and the way to make successful applications for this funding. You can find out more about these here: http://www.eri.ed.ac.uk/events/researchfunding.html 3 flavours of course have been developed: [1] an introduction to research funding; [2] external funding for early to mid-career staff; [3] opportunities for senior and established staff. Course 3: Funding opportunities for established researchers: ERI will be running a course for opportunities for senior and established staff in the College of Science and Engineering on 17 November 2009 here at King's Buildings. This workshop will be led by a senior member of staff from the College and its aim is to enable senior research staff to sustain and refresh their knowledge of the current funding landscape and catch up on any recent developments in their field. Peers from your College will give advice on the maintenance of your research funding and give you hints on making the best quality applications for the funding schemes that suit your research. This course will also explore the differences between domestic and international funding, making it invaluable for researchers moving to Edinburgh from abroad. In addition to personal funding large collaborative grants and projects will be discussed including sessions on European funding. This course is aimed at senior academic staff of PI level and above. To get the right balance of staff this will be an invitation-only event and it would be good to have your help in putting a list of invitees together. I would be grateful if you could nominate staff from your School to attend the course. If possible could you let me know who your nominations are by 10 November 2009.
