Digital Economy
Fundamental Research

This course is aimed at equipping individuals in organisations of all types and sizes who have the responsibility for developing research and development-style proposals with the relevant skills and know-how to produce engaging, high quality, successful bids. It is relevant to people working in all sectors and to all kinds of proposals irrespective of funding source. The course covers the various types of bids and proposals, the key similarities and differences between them and the various approaches needed to reflect these factors. The content of the training is structured to address all key issues central to a well-presented proposal. This includes planning, writing the bid, structure and writing style as well as partnership development, budgets and eligibility. The importance of review and checking, the actual submission process and what happens to a proposal after submission are also described. The course encourages an interactive approach and uses a mixture of lecture style-delivery, workshop activities and structured discussion. There is also ample opportunity for question and answer sessions. Extensive class exercises make the training as practical as possible.
