ECM Faculty Focus
The Research Executive and the Research Development Office will be running an intensive workshop over three weeks in January 2010 focusing on the forthcoming ARC Discovery Project (DP) applications due in February 2010.
The workshop is aimed at researchers who will be applying for an ARC grant for the first time or those who have been unsuccessful in the past. The objective of the workshop is to guide attendees through the application process, tackling each section at a time as well as developing grant writing skills.
Each participant is expected to submit a grant application in the 2010 round.
The workshop, coordinated by the Research Development Office (RDO), will cover all aspects of a DP application and will include presentations and writing sessions facilitated by:
- Professor Robyn Owens, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)
- Professor Alistar Robertson, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research
- Dr Campbell Thomson, Director, Development and Research Services
- Ms Christine Casey, Associate Director, Research Grants and
- Dr Judith Berman, Associate Director, Research Development
... and successful ARC DP applicants.
Participants will be required to attend for 27 hrs which will include 9 one hour presentations and 18 hours of intensive writing over a period of three weeks. The workshop will start on Jan 11th 2010 and will be held on Mon, Wed and Fri from 10am-1pm each week finishing on Friday 29th January.
Morning tea and a light lunch will be provided and all attendees will receive a complimentary memory stick for data storage.
The RDO team will assist with the development of your application. Once you have completed your final draft towards the end of the workshop a member of the Research Executive will read through your application and provide feedback.
As this is an intensive, hands-on workshop and places are limited, please submit an application form (which will include a one page project description and details of your track record) to Vincent Wallace.
Application forms are available from Vincent Wallace.
The closing date for applications to attend this workshop is: 5pm Friday 20th November.
