Do reviewers improve research?

Have you ever had an academic paper reviewed and therefore developed a better paper?

Would you like to see the same improvement in your performance before a review panel?

Come along to hear how reviews from peers and industrialists have helped Engineering Department academics to win bids. Hear how these reviews work and how advice could improves your performance in a panel session.

Recent successful bids from the Engineering Department have been helped by reviews from peers and industrialists – Red Team reviews. You will hear how these reviews work and what you can gain from them. Who should you include, how should you brief them, and what should you do with the advice.

Philip Guildford, Director of Research and Finance in CUED will describe ways of getting your core proposition more robust. Professor Rob Miller and Dr Tim Minshall will describe how Red Team reviews improved their successful bids for (large amounts of) EPSRC funding in the last few years. The panel will answer questions and compare experiences – so come along and get some useful insights.
