Winning and managing grants and consultancies
Seminar (1 of 4) about research mentoring presented by CoInEd Research Network
During the past 20 years, the expectation for researchers and academics to win grants and complete consultancies has increased exponentially. While these research activities can significantly advance one’s career and also serve as a means to disseminate research and practice more broadly, they can also be challenging to win, difficult to navigate, and time-consuming to complete. How does one start consulting? What strategies help win grants? What pitfalls should be avoided? This event aims to address these and related questions. The event will maintain a particular focus on grants and consultancies relevant to researchers whose work is situated in Comparative and International Education, but the scope of advice and expertise likely extends to other related fields as well.
