We run a programme of events throughout the year to provide UWS researchers with the inside knowledge on how funders work and what makes a successful grant application. Forthcoming events are advertised by email and on the Research Services staff intranet site.
Grant Accelerator will relaunch in October 2021 with pathways for early career and mid-career researchers. This is our flagship grant proposal development programme. The Grant Accelerator bite-size programme of funder visits continues throughout the year.
