Workshop 1: Securing Wellcome Trust Funding as an Established Senior Researcher with Dr John Williams.

Wellcome Trust Invitees will be briefed on the Wellcome Trust support available for established senior researchers including Investigator Awards, Senior Fellowships and Strategic Awards. Dr Williams will particularly focus on the Investigator Award Programme, in terms of its objectives, eligibility, length and scale of support, and the associated application process. There will be an opportunity to discuss what makes a strong application to the Wellcome Trust. Invitees will be updated on the wider strategic priorities and future directions of the Wellcome Trust.    

Workshop 2: Propelling your Early-Career Research with Wellcome Trust Funding with Dr Shewly Choudhury.

Wellcome Trust Participants will be briefed on the Wellcome Trust support available for early-career researchers including Fellowships (basic and non-clinical), New Investigator Awards and a number of schemes open to Irish researchers that fall outside the remit of the Partnership. Dr Choudhury will discuss the objectives, eligibility, length and scale of support and the application process associated with these schemes, and also offer some tips and pitfalls to avoid for a competitive grant application.
