Today’s complex scientific and social challenges often require the close and coordinated collaboration of many researchers from different disciplinary approaches.  Center grant mechanisms can be attractive solution for funding these collaborations, but the programs offering them are often very competitive and the process for assembling teams and proposals is intricate and challenging.  This webinar will provide an introduction to center grant mechanisms at the NIH and NSF and give insight into what competitive proposals and teams look like.

Registration is required

OVPR Grantwriting Webinar – Revision and Resubmission (1/17/19)

Thursday, January 17, 2018 – 10 AM- 12 PM (we expect the webinar to be 1-1.5 hours long, extra time is allowed for questions and discussion)

Babbidge Library Class of 1947 Room (1st Floor), Storrs Campus, or via Skype

Registration Deadline: January 14, 2018 by 12 noon.

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is pleased to announce a grantwriting webinar to be conducted by Hanover Research.

This webinar, the third in a series covering the grantseeking lifecycle, will focus on revision and resubmission.  It is a well established fact that in today's funding climate, few grant seekers will be funded on their first attempt.  This webinar will help participants prepare more competitive resubmissions by addressing how to get the most from reviewer feedback and how to approach the revision/resubmission process.  Participants with all levels of experience with grantseeking are welcome.  The presentation will take a foundational approach suitable for those who are newer to the process, and we encourage more experienced grantseekers to indicate specific concerns/questions on this topic they would also like the presentation to address (using the space provided in the registration form).

The OVPR is making this webinar available to UConn/UConn Health faculty members, as well as postdocs and advanced graduate students.  Please contact research@uconn.edu for details.

Registration is required
