Pre-conference early career workshop: Writing Successful Research Proposals in Ageing Studies
Event Date: 5th July 2010
Brunel University, West London
You are warmly invited to participate in our one day workshop 'Writing Successful Research Proposals', which precedes the 39th Annual Conference of the British Society of Gerontology. This is an exciting opportunity to share ideas and gain knowledge and experience in writing successful research proposals in ageing studies. We are delighted to have the participation of key experts and researchers who have a wealth of experience and knowledge about writing and managing successful research projects and have been frequent reviewers for the main research bodies. The workshop will be of particular interest to emergent researchers in ageing as well as more experienced academics and researchers who want to explore ways to translate a good research idea into a successful research project. The day is participatory and is structured as follows:
The morning will cover different aspects of writing research proposals, presented and discussed by established academics from a variety of Universities who are experienced in writing successful research proposals. Confirmed speakers include Prof Alan Walker (Programme Director, New Dynamics of Ageing) (Chair), Prof Mary Gilhooly (Brunel University) and Prof Chris Phillipson (Keele University).
During the afternoon you will have the opportunity to be reviewers of a variety of research proposals, led by Prof Christina Victor (Brunel University). Participants will have the opportunity to actively engage in reviewing ‘real’ research project applications to improve their understanding of what makes a good research application, and compare to the actual reviews these proposals received.
The workshop is free but there are limited places available so registration is required. Please use the registration form below, which you should then return to Marianne Keane at Brunel University (contact details on the form), not to the NDA team. Preference will be given to participants of BSG-ERA and NDA.
