NIHR supports workshops for Early Career Researchers to write, lead and submit their first grant in the field of dementia

Friday 24 January 2020

Join a series of NIHR supported workshops for Early Career Researcher (ECR) academics in writing, leading and submitting their first grant in the field of dementia. A small number of funded places are still available. The NIHR Portfolio Development group is supporting a number of workshops developed and coordinated by Dr Katie Featherstone to enable a cohort of Early Career Researchers working in the field of Dementia to write and submit their first significant grant as PI aimed at NIHR/MRC/Alzheimer’s Society/Alzheimer’s Research UK funding streams. This is an opportunity to understand the process including finding your narrative, meet other researchers in a similar situation, and learning the craft of successful grant writing from experienced NIHR and NHS researchers who have been through the process successfully.

Submitting a large grant proposal can be a daunting prospect; these workshops aim to support and provide mentorship to a cohort of Early Career Researchers to develop clinical interdisciplinary research ideas, foster collegiate working practices, and ultimately submit a high-quality research proposal.

Workshop 1: How to identify clinically relevant research questions

Workshop 2: Developing research that meets the needs of people living with dementia

Workshop 3: Cohesion of story and achieving methodological congruence

Workshop 4: Designing and delivering dissemination and impact

As at 24 January 2020, there were still a couple of funded places left on this year’s series of workshops to be hosted in London.

Please email for more information on how to apply. The deadline for applications is 7 February 2020.
