One of InterAct's core goals is the professional development of early career researchers (ECRs). This session aims to give researchers the knowledge and confidence to create more effective funding applications within the context of the InterAct and Made Smarter Innovation subject areas. We aim to achieve this by examining and discussing examples of successful applications, developing opportunities for networking/feedback, and through sharing our knowledge of navigating the administrative processes associated with funding calls.
This session will be led by Professor Jan Godsell, Principal Investigator of the InterAct project, a £4.4 million, Made Smarter Innovation funded, Economic and Social Research Council-led network that aims to bring together economic and social scientists, UK manufacturers, and digital technology providers to address the human issues resulting from the diffusion of new technologies in industry.
We will be welcoming speakers from the two successful applicant teams of our first funding call, the InterAct Systematic Reviews. They will share their advice on creating compelling applications and avoiding common pitfalls when writing a proposal.
We hope this session will also provide researchers with a better understanding of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) criteria used by InterAct, which will enable them to craft specific and detailed proposals for future funding.
