ISR grant writing workshop & panel discussion on review committees
Thursday, 6/29/2017, 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. ARCHIVED EVENT
Location: 1430 ISR-Thompson
On June 29 ISR will hold two events designed to help researchers develop successful grant proposals.
10:00-12:00: "Writing a Competitive Research Grant Proposal," a workshop taught by Jill Jividen, who has led Research Development in the U-M Medical School Office of Research since 2014, including managing the R01 Boot Camp. This workshop offers strategies for developing research grant proposals for a variety of sponsors in this competitive funding climate. Following this workshop, you will be able to:
- Develop a persuasive grant proposal that is responsive to a sponsor’s priorities.
- Learn ways to prepare for a critical review.
- Turn your good idea into a fundable idea.
- Examine elements of a focused research plan, including hypotheses or research questions, objectives and long-range research goals, and rationales and methods.
- Review existing resources at the University of Michigan for research proposal development.
12:00-1:30: "Insights from Grant Review Committees," a panel discussion by ISR faculty who are current and recent members of major proposal review committees, including NIH study sections and NSF review panels. These faculty will provide their insights and suggestions based on the recent experiences on review committees. In addition to the faculty who will be on the panel, we expect that many other faculty in attendance will have insights to share from their experiences as reviewers and reviewees of grant proposals.
Both events are open to all ISR faculty, postdocs, and students, and may also be of interest to research administrative staff. Lunch will be provided for the panel discussion. Please RSVP for both events.
