SECG proudly presents - Funding Outside the Box: How to Source Alternative Streams of Income to Fund Your Ageing Research

Research funding is in great demand nowadays, but relatively short supply. Many of the traditional funding schemes open to researchers are highly competitive and characterised by very low success rates. For emerging researchers in particular, there is a need to be creative in identifying alternative sources of funding that will sustain their ongoing research interests where traditional funding may be lacking.

This webinar will highlight a number of alternative sources of research funding ‘outside the box’ of traditional sources. Three panel members with experience of sourcing funding in the alternative realm, including crowd funding, industry and philanthropic sources, will discuss their experiences. Participants will hear about both the advantages and drawbacks of alternative research funding, and identify key strategies for success.

Participants will:

• Learn about a range of different options for sourcing research funding outside traditional sources.

• Learn from the experiences of three researchers, including early career researchers and a more[MC1] established researcher.

• This information could assist participants in tailoring future funding applications.
