The secret to a successful grant application

Webinar description

At scientifyRESEARCH, we are on a mission to empower researchers with funding information and the necessary resources to succeed in securing funding. Do you want to understand how grant applications are assessed and what makes the best application stand out?

To fulfill this mission, we have partnered with Dr. Gareth Dyke from Reviewer Credits on a funding webinar, where we will cover:

  1. Understanding the assessment process by reviewers
  2. Insider tips on pitching, setting up, and proposing ideas in grant applications
  3. Insights on non-specialists who review your CV - how to write a compelling application for reviewers
  4. See examples tailored to different funding agencies

It's time to get the grant funding your research deserves! Let us help you increase your chance of success!
