Innovate UK - Grant Application Workshop - 8th May

8th May 2018, 09:00 to 16:00, Hild Bede College, Durham University, Various
Attend this unique event to give you the knowledge you need to create a compelling grant application

When applying for a grant, it often requires a significant investment of time to put forward a compelling case. Yet grants can be a real enabler in realising your innovative ideas and supporting business growth. So, what are the key elements that make a successful grant application? How can you make your application stand out from the crowd and deliver a competitive business case?

Durham University in partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network are delivering a workshop on writing a good grant proposal, why particular questions are asked and how to effectively structure information clearly and concisely for Innovate UK applications, as well as other grant programmes.

Businesses attending this workshop will leave armed with the knowledge and information you need to complete a succesful application.
