Interactive workshop on US federal funding opportunities for international researchers

Friday 10 June 2016, 10.00 – 16.00 hrs

University of Glasgow: Sir Charles Wilson Building, University Avenue, Glasgow

This event, hosted by Glasgow University’s EU and International Research Support Team and part-funded by EARMA (the European Association of Research Managers and Administrators) will focus on US funders which award research grants directly to non-US institutions and is intended primarily for researcher support staff but will also be of interest to PIs.

The objectives of the workshop are to provide you with:

  • an overview of the US Federal Research Funding landscape, focussing on
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • Department of Defense (DoD)
  • an insight to the pre-application stage (funder registration processes and pre-requisites such as ethics review and research integrity systems/processes)
  • guidance on finding suitable funding opportunities (front & back door approaches)
  • instruction on the application processes and format of the main funders
  • proposal writing tips (in the context of US federal funding)


Places are limited and the workshop includes practical, on-line sessions for which participants will benefit from bringing along a fully charged lap top.

To register please email Ms Elaine Calder (, stating whether your primary role is research or research support, and whether you are an EARMA member.
