Research grant application guidance and support

Guidance and support relating to research grant applications is provided directly by the Research Support Office (RSO) in collaboration with academic Schools.  Training sessions addressing specific discipline/subject processes and issues can be provided.  To enquire further about such opportunities, please contact the Associate Dean for Research for your School or the appropriate Research Development Manager in the RSO:

ABS:  Nathaniel Golden (n.golden@aston.ac.uk
EAS:  Paul Knobbs (p.r.knobbs@aston.ac.uk)
LHS:  Karen Woodhall (k.a.woodhall@aston.ac.uk)
LSS:  Kevin O'Reilly (k.d.oreilly@aston.ac.uk)

In addition, the RSO runs occasional seminars for staff on specific funding processes (eg FP7) and publicises relevant external training events.  Staff should consult the RSO web-pages for details.  The RSO web-pages also contain a range of written guidance, including the RSO’s own Good Practice Guide on applying for Research Council funding.
