If you're a long-time reader of this page, you'll remember hearing about the Research Funding Observatory several times over the years. If you haven't made it down to a session yourself, here's what the RFO is all about, and what you can expect from the next few months.
What is the RFO?
The RFO is organised around three themes: Discover, Explore, Succeed.
Discover is aimed at new researchers: how do you find funding and apply? Explore aims to support researchers in these applications: targeting more carefully and focusing on the important issues in the process. Succeed gets right into the detail of preparing a winning bid: how do you give yourself the best chance of winning funding?
Seminar topics are chosen carefully to fit into the Explore theme, but often apply to more of these themes.
The seminars start at 12.15pm and last for one hour: a bitesize chunk of useful hints and tips to improve your funding potential. We provide the tea and coffee, and we encourage you to bring your packed lunch with you!
Why should you go to a seminar?
