Applying for grants can be a complicated process for any researcher, but it’s even more challenging for early career academics. Many grants today require additional support from third parties, including industry, and it is important that the outcome from the research has a relevance to the industrial partner.


This training event aims to equip participants with the best practices for grants writing in collaboration with industry, and designing a good commercialization plan for scientific research. The event will include hands-on sessions in which delegates will be able to discuss examples of grants applications, talks from professionals who successfully commercialized their scientific research, and how to engage industry support. Speakers are from academia, industry and funding bodies.


Topics include:

  • The national and international funding landscape
  • Writing successful grant applications
  • Working with industry – perspectives from both sides 
  • Commercialising your research

Biochemical Society Training Events are designed to address a specific scientific training need within the bioscience community, aimed at PhD level and beyond. These events aim to create a platform for participants to gain hands-on experience, and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss problems with experts in the field.

Speakers include:

  • Alan Goddard, Aston University
  • Anna Hine, Aston University
  • Annie Cardew, IQVIA Patient Recruitment
  • Liz Jenkinson, Green Biologics
  • Mike Morris, Waters Corporation
