As research support professionals bid development is as a core aspect of our job, but has our understanding of this activity become too narrow? This session will examine how we can expand our understanding of bid development to take it beyond offering comments on a draft, and see it as a process that begins before the decision to bid has been made and continues beyond the outcome of the proposal is received. The session will explore the following areas:
– How do we frame the concept of bidding when discussing it with our academic colleagues, and how can we foster an approach that is more likely to generate excellent applications?
– How can writing styles be adapted to make them more suitable for drafting applications?
– What are the pros and cons of using templates?
– How do we as research support professionals establish relationships and build credibility with our academic colleagues?
– How do we learn from feedback gleaned from previous applications to help develop future bids? The session will be interactive in nature and presentations will be complimented by a mixture of whole group questions and small group discussions to explore experiences from a range of institutions and disciplines.
Please note this session is now fully booked.
