  19. 19. The importance of networks 1. To learn about opportunities  From known colleagues who work in the same domain as you  At Edinburgh Napier  Beyond Edinburgh Napier  From elsewhere  Social media: e.g. follow research councils on Twitter, relevant blogs  Mailings lists, e.g. JISC  Participation at external events, from networking sessions to international conferences 2. To develop ideas in readiness for opportunities  e.g. possible research partnerships  e.g. potential sites for data collection
  20. 20. When you decide to make an application 1. Check your eligibility carefully  You may not be eligible/super-eligible 2. Treat writing the application as a mini-project in itself  To write a good proposal takes time 3. Enlist help with drafting the application  From others who have won grants from/have connections with the body in question  From the University research support staff  For research council grants in particular  From peer review college members  From those who have review panel experience  From those who serve on research council committees
