Enhance your communication skills: new workshops for preparing proposals and delivering academic presentations

PGR Development have now opened booking for the following workshops, which both offer opportunities to communicate your research to an interdisciplinary audience and learn through discussion and feedback.

Preparing Proposals: Effectively Communicate Your Research

18 Dec 12:00 – 4:30pm

This workshop provides an opportunity for postgraduate researchers to develop a grant/funding proposal to an audience of multi-disciplinary researchers. You will have an opportunity to present your proposal to your peers, gain feedback, further refine your proposal and experience a peer review. As a result, you will gain a greater understanding of the peer assessment process and how to effectively prepare proposals.

This workshop is open to all PGRs in the University of Liverpool
