Workshop – Preparing Research Grant Proposals

This presentation is part of Western’s Teaching Support Centre‘s Faculty Mentor Program:

Preparing Research Grant Proposals: CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC

Friday, September 30, 2016
1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Teaching Support Centre
Room 122, Weldon Library

How is your grant application judged? Will changes in the Councils have an impact on your approach to your application? Knowledgeable colleagues offer guidance and advice on how to best position your application, and share their experiences with grant review panels. We begin this workshop with a brief Meet and Greet period, and continue with introductions and general observations from the panel. Much of the session will be devoted to breakout groups dedicated to each of the three Councils, to provide time for focused discussion and questions. You choose which is most relevant for your area: CIHR, NSERC, or SSHRC. Take a look at the grant application form and come with your questions and join the conversation. Our panelists:

Dr. David Holdsworth (CIHR)
Professor, Departments of Surgery and Medical Biophysics
Scientist, Robarts Research Institute

Dr. Brian Branfireun (NSERC)
Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair
Department of Biology and Centre for Environment and Sustainability

Dr. Jacquie Burkell (SSHRC)
Associate Professor and Assistant Dean – Research
Faculty of Information and Media Studies

Registration is restricted to Western faculty members, librarians and archivists, and post-doctoral scholars.
