Grant writing time for your customers is not far away. Are customers thinking about your facility when they write their application?

The workshop will cover the information that facilities can supply that might make grant applications stronger, increasing the chance of the application being funded for the fullest amount and giving the best chance for those grant funds to be spent in your facility.

The workshop includes:

  • An expert panel of grant applicants and members from federal funding bodies NHMRC and ARC.
  • Discussion about factors that improve the chances or proportion of funding that facilities can contribute to.
  • A workshop discussion session in which we will develop a template or set of guidelines that facilities can use to support funding applications.

The panel and workshop session will be led by our workshop facilitator from Raven Consulting Group, Dr Richard Huysmans.

The panel will include:

  • Dr Laura Dan, Chief Program Officer, Programs Branch, Australian Research Council
  • Prof Roy Goldie, Senior Research Scientist, Lead Scientist: Peer Review, Office of the CEO, NHMRC
  • Dr Jason Howitt, Senior Research Officer, The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health
  • Dr Sasha Wilson, School of Geosciences, Monash University

Expected outcomes:

  • Facilities will develop their understanding of what is the best set of information that they can provide grant applicants who are proposing to use their facility in a grant proposal/application and a template in which to present this information.


  • Royal Melbourne Hospital Function Centre, 330 Grattan St, Parkville.

This workshop is free to attend. Morning tea and lunch are provided. In a slight departure from the normal professional development workshops, we are also encouraging research administrators and Chief Investigators to attend.

Registrations close 9am on Wednesday 5th November.
