ECM Faculty Focus
This workshop is designed for experienced and beginning researchers, postgraduate students and UWA research affiliates.
Effective research must be carefully planned to achieve the best outcomes for the researcher/s, the university and the furthering of knowledge. This module explores the initial stage of research project management: designing and costing the project as well as operating within the broader research and political context. This module is suited to any researcher who is developing a new grant proposal or project area.
After completing this module you should be able to:
- Identify the broader research context in which you will be administering research projects, forming research teams and seeking appropriate grants while ensuring these support your university's strategic goals;
- Appraise the strategy of conducting research;
- Successfully write grant proposals;
- Plan the initial stage of a research project (the most effective stage), including:
- designing the program
- estimating costs
- providing budget control of the research project
- operate successfully within the broader research and political context.
The workshop will provide you with an opportunity to explore grant seeking principles, review project management processes and to explore a complex case study in some depth. There will be considerable opportunity for interaction with other participants and to share good practice.

- Understanding the Research Context
