This one’s for my fellow bid writers. My contact at a major UK University is looking for someone with experience of writing innovation/research funding grants and combining academic input with a business driven approach, in particular those awarded by Innovate UK/TSB.
They will consider both ‘grant by grant’ support as well as the provision of training/workshops to their own staff (academics).
Their aim is twofold and at present is focused on stage 1:
- To find the right person with the right experience to assist them with applying for grants to fund their initial product development needs and;
- Following the development of those products, selling them into the public sector via the usual tendering routes, with potential support from an experienced public sector tender writer such as myself
If you have – or know someone who has – this type of grant writing experience particularly in relation to Innovate UK/TSB grants – please contact me and I will put you in touch.
