How to communicate your research to the public and improve your social media presence
If a tree – even a well-funded, IRB-approved, peer-reviewed tree – falls in the proverbial woods and no one hears it, your research might not have the impact it could. We’ll talk about taking research communication beyond the check-box on your grant proposal and making it integral to your work – and fun! Learn about talking to reporters, using social media, accessing communicators around the university, and the amazing communications tool you carry in your pocket.
Graduate students need preparation to be the next generation of researchers and educators.
At this workshop, a panel of UNH faculty and administrators experienced in working with graduate students will discuss strategies to enhance grad student participation in research, to mentor grad students with regards to their teaching, and to improve grad students' grant seeking and writing skills.
In an increasingly competitive funding environment, it is essential to make sure your proposal stands out from others under review. Telling a clear, compelling story is critical to your proposal’s success.
This workshop will cover effective proposal writing techniques from the big picture to the sentence level. Grant writing pitfalls to avoid also will be discussed.
Effective strategies for identifying funding opportunities for your project include more than just searching a database.
This workshop will introduce a range of approaches and tools that help make searching for funding more productive and efficient. It will include strategies to manage and optimize funding opportunity searches, and an overview of tools provided on the Research Office web site and on other web sites.
Before investing time in writing a proposal for a specific “call,” stepping back to do a readiness assessment can help you determine your best short and long term strategies to maximize success. Junior faculty may feel pressed to churn out numerous proposals in their first few years, perhaps without a well-developed 3-5 year plan; senior faculty may respond to an RFP with an impending deadline without considering competitive positioning.
