External providers of workshops and support
Research funding agencies regularly hold Information Sessions around funding calls. Some may take place in DIT and some may be held externally, for example, at a funder’s headquarters. Some funders also hold webinars. Around the time of funding calls opening for applications is a time when funders often issue information around a particular call and hold an event to publicise the call and to provide advice and guidance around it. While you may not be intending to apply immediately to a particular funding scheme attending a funder advisory session is highly recommended as this will allow you to become familiar with a particular funding scheme and its requirements well in advance of a submission deadline. Also you will start to become familiar with common language and key elements related to proposal submission and development. Many funding agencies issues ezines and signing up for these is an easy way to stay in touch with relevant funding calls and events arranged by funders of particular interest to you.
