Research funding is increasingly moving towards multi-million pound grants that include multiple partners, often across a range of disciplines, universities and often with the involvement of non-academic stakeholders. To add to these complexities, many of these calls have relatively short deadlines. How best to coordinate efforts to bring together a high quality funding application under such conditions? What ways are there to assemble relevant teams under time constraints while ensuring their buy-in and reflecting relevant expertise and the promise of good future working relations?

This event offers first-hand reflections by two recent award holders of major research funding who successfully overcame such obstacles:

Professor Wendy Bennett, Professor of French Philology and Linguistics and Principal Investigator (PI) for the AHRC-funded large grant on ‘Multilingualism: Empowering Individuals, Transforming Societies’ (MEITS) with Nottingham, Queen’s University Belfast and Edinburgh.

Professor Huw Price, Bertrand Russell Professor of Philosophy and PI and Director of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence with Oxford, Berkeley and Imperial College London.

This event is most applicable for academic staff on permanent contracts, UTO or CTO positions.
