Target Audience

This workshop is an ARMA “Good Practice Exchange” event to support colleagues who support academics with the development of GCRF funding applications.

We have a whole host of speakers who bring a depth of experience from a range of institutions who have seen success with GCRF, but we would stress that the workshop is mainly interactive. Ideally, you would have been supporting colleagues with their GCRF funding applications and would be able to join group discussions in relation to this. The focus of the day will be on pre-award development of applications, and will predominantly benefit colleagues who work in research development roles (although we would stress that everyone is welcome!).

GCRF has been ongoing now for a couple of years, there have been numerous lessons learned but given the changing landscape, we must continue to evolve in order to be successful with our applications. The workshop provides a great opportunity to network with colleagues, consider key challenges and opportunities we face with regards to GCRF, and share best practice with peers.

We would stress, those who have previously attended “Understanding GCRF” workshops would find this beneficial as it will feature a different programme, different speakers and different attendees feeding into discussions!

Aims and Objectives

At the end of the session attendees will have;

·        Developed a better understanding of best practice across institutions with regards to supporting GCRF funding applications.

·        A greater depth of knowledge with regards to how best to develop GCRF applications which feed into effective programme delivery.

·        A more advanced understanding of how to engage colleagues who are yet to engage with GCRF.

·        A better understanding of how best to support and develop ODA funding applications.

Good Practice Exchange

This workshop is a Good Practice Exchange event. These events explore good practice across the sector on specific topics, currently, we run over 15 GPEs throughout the training and development annual calendar. These one-day events enable delegates to hear from others working in this area in the area and listen to good practice case studies from a range of institutions. They provide a chance to share experiences and expertise with colleagues in structured, small group discussions. The workshops are interactive and delegates are expected to contribute and share in the discussions.

E-delegate Packs

As part of your ARMA delegate experience, we like to give you a pack of everything you will need for your training event. A couple of days prior to the workshop you will be attending, we will send you an information pack about ARMA, a programme for you to print out for the day and a delegate list of your fellow attendees. You may also receive presentations prior to the event if our speakers consent to this, however, this is not guaranteed due to the nature of each workshop.

You can find all other information on your speakers, the venue and what you will come away with from our website.
