Applying for research funding? Listen to the experts

Posted on Updated on

Securing research funding is always a fiercely competitive process.

Whilst there’s no changing the degree of competition, expert advice from reviewers and researchers can make a big difference to the quality of your application and may well increase your chances of success. The Guardian recently published a useful summary of top tips for funding applications to help you through the process.
