Workshops

The GrantEd Group helps you to develop professional skills in planning, proposal writing and more, to help position you for success and impact.

Our strategic, practical workshops follow a proven methodology, delivering a suite of case study-driven sessions designed to enable individuals and teams to develop skills and accelerate success.

As a result, you will be better able to plan, communicate and deliver funding proposals, business development opportunities and career pathways.

Our Impact  Model

This is our Research Impact Strategy model.     It breaks up the five key elements needed to undertake research that has impact. All our workshops are underpinned by these five key elements. 

     TM

 

Responding to Demand

Module 1: Identifying demand for your research

This three-hour workshop is an opportunity to identify demand for your research beyond academia. Who needs your research? What are its significant drivers? You will develop the skills to respond to government, funder and industry expectations of research for impact.

Module 2: Carving out an academic research problem

This three-hour workshop outlines how to scope a significant and innovative problem that will have impact in your field.

Useful to:

Researchers applying for all categories of funding opportunities, ranging from blue sky discovery research to those interested in developing research partnerships with industry.

 

Accessing Support and Resources

ARC: Preparing your ROPE

Even the most amazing project ideas won’t fly without an outstanding researcher or team behind them. This three-hour session will outline how to carefully craft an ARC research opportunity and performance evidence section to effectively convey brilliance on paper.

ARC: Preparing your DECRA

This six-hour session will assist researchers to understand the calibre of researcher they are competing against and self-assess their readiness and competitiveness to navigate the grant application landscape.

Useful to:

Researchers applying for ARC and/or NHMRC funding opportunities, and those interested in developing research partnerships with industry.

ARC: Preparing your Linkage application

This six-hour session will assist researchers to understand how to support the initiation and/or development of long-term strategic research alliances and design competitive research projects to be conducted in collaboration with organisations outside the higher education sector.

NHMRC: Preparing your Track Record section

This three-hour workshop will develop researchers’ knowledge and skills in planning and writing the track record section of an NHMRC Investigator or Synergy Grant, focusing on their leadership, best five publications in the past 10 years and impact case study.

ARC: Preparing your Discovery application

This six-hour session will assist researchers to understand how to prepare an innovative Discovery application of high quality that addresses a significant problem outside of academia.

NHMRC: Preparing your Investigator Grant

This six-hour workshop will develop researchers’ knowledge and skills in planning and writing proposals for the NHMRC Investigator Grant scheme.

NHMRC: Preparing your Impact case study

This three-hour workshop concentrates only on the impact case study aspect of the NHMRC track record criteria and will assist researchers to understand the NHMRC’s definition of impact and identify the key differences between  knowledge, health, economic and social impact

NHMRC: Preparing your Ideas Grant

This six-hour workshop will develop researchers’ knowledge and skills in planning and writing proposals for the new NHMRC Ideas Grant scheme. In particular, this workshop will assist researchers to plan and their application for quality, innovation, creativity, significance and feasibility. 

Planning to win and manage Category 2 and 3 partnerships and funding

This six-hour workshop will assist researchers to understand the fundamentals involved in attracting and winning non-category 1 funding (e.g. from consultancies, tenders, and contracts).

 

Developing effective people

and teams

Module 1: Telling your story

This three-hour session is an opportunity for you to identify and write about the key elements of a “successful” track record in relation to your funding and other professional contexts. Although research outputs (academic publications and NTROs) are important, increased value has also now been placed on your research leadership, significant research outcomes and associated research impact.

Module 2: Planning for the future

This three-hour session is an opportunity to identify your short, medium and long-term research career goals and plan for career activities required to achieve these goals.

Useful to:

Researchers applying for all categories of funding opportunities, ranging and those interested in developing research partnerships with industry.

Module 1: Designing an innovative, high quality project

This three-hour session is an opportunity for you to identify and write about the key elements of a “successful” track record in relation to your funding and other professional contexts. Although research outputs (academic publications and NTROs) are important, increased value has also now been placed on your research leadership, significant research outcomes and associated research impact.

Module 2: Planning for the future

In a highly competitive funding environment, the innovation of your project and quality way you plan to conduct it are crucial. This three-hour workshop focuses on assisting you to plan your project and critically analyse the extent to which it is genuinely innovative.

Useful to:

Researchers applying for all categories of funding opportunities and are interested in developing research partnerships with industry.

 

Capturing, measuring, 

evaluating and communicating

Module 1: Academic impact - how to plan for it, measure it and evaluate its significance and reach

This three-hour workshop outlines how to build academic impact into all stages of research. In the first half of the workshop, participants will be guided through planning for impact from the start of your project; building strategic collaborations; and developing clear and realistic plans for research dissemination. Tracking, demonstrating and reporting impact are crucial to ongoing academic success.

 

The second half of the workshop focuses on choosing processes to measure the significance and reach of your research, and how to communicate your impact to institutions, peers and funding bodies.

Useful to:

Researchers applying for all categories of funding opportunities, ranging from blue sky discovery research to those interested in developing research partnerships with industry.

Module 2: Research impact outside of academia - how to plan for it, measure it and evaluate its significance and reach

Achieving impact beyond academia is an increasingly frequent expectation of funding bodies, academic employers, and industry partners. This three-hour workshop addresses this important part of the research process, prompting participants to build impact into their plans from the start.
