In this introductory, practical, fund writing workshop, Edwin will talk you through the funding process and what he has found to work. Edwin will also guide you through the who are the best people and departments to approach for funding. We will invite 3 or 4 people to bring along their previously written grants so you will be able to discuss what works and what doesn’t.
