Gaining Research Funding: An interdisciplinary perspective







Many funding bodies request that applicants adopt an interdisciplinary perspective. This is because some challenges cannot be resolved by a single organisation or from one sectoral or disciplinary perspective. Typically, such challenges cut across a number of disciplines, requiring:

1) The capacity to think across and between as well as within thematic areas.
2) A clear understanding of the ways in which different disciplines can contribute to delivery against these challenges
3) An awareness of the underlying factors and contexts that may hold back the effective conduct of interdisciplinary research.

In this workshop we draw on the insight of leading scholars to formulate questions and answers to pressing issues arising from inter-D research in order to:

1) Facilitate reflection on why an interdisciplinary lens has value for your research 

2) Reflect on how inter-disciplinary research can help deliver address significant societal and economic challenges

3) Foster understanding about strategies to work across disciplines in achieving your research goals.





This event will take place on the 29th November 2018 (10.30am - 4pm)
