RIS Writing Retreat #4

Would you value a couple of days away from campus to develop a research proposal with research development staff on hand, as well as a host of other useful professionals from across the University?

Date: 15-16 January 2018
Location: University of Bath Innovation Centre

The retreat is an opportunity to work intensively on your proposal, if you are intending to submit by July 2018. We have booked space at the Innovation Centre to host academics and researchers. Small teams are also eligible to apply. Research Development Managers and other professionals at the University will be on hand at all times to help.

  • identify a funding opportunity, ideally to the value of £250k or above (and be eligible to apply)
  • be the PI or University of Bath lead
  • anticipate submitting your application by July 2018
  • commit to attending both days
  • commit to working exclusively on your proposal
  • commit to giving feedback on the event and reporting the outcomes
