Afternoon session 13.00 until 15.30 – The afternoon session will give us the opportunity to share knowledge and experience of funding applications and put our heads together to help participants with particular questions or ideas for collaborative applications. There is the opportunity to work as a whole or split into small groups. It would be great if you could send through and idea of;
  • What you need/want to raise funds for
  • What, if any, funding applications you are currently working on, and what aspects of the process(s) you’d like some help with
  • What project ideas you have that you’d like to explore possibilities for, working with your own group or collaborating with the wider network.
  • What other aspects of raising funds/proposal writing you’d like support with.
We can then tailor the session to help you get the most out of the day. If you’d like to bring along proposals that you are working on or have submitted to share with the group, that would be good too. We’ll have some examples of successful and unsuccessful bids at various levels to look at as well.
