Want to find out how to make the most of your research and maximise its impact? Then this workshop is for you!

This workshop is the ideal starting point for anyone intending to do policy or applied research in their home countries.

The workshop will introduce some key concepts, frameworks, and tools for understanding research and knowledge systems. You will also learn about designing and implementing research projects to maximise their usefulness and make the best use of research. Finally, the workshop will focus on how to develop effective funding proposals which meet funders’ call specifications.

Please note this is the first of two sessions in the Research Proposal and Grant Writing workshop. Scholars should be available to attend both parts of the workshop.

The CSC’s Leaders in Sustainable Development programme of workshops focus on professional and practical skills and are designed to be interactive, with small groups of Scholars and Fellows taking part in each event.
