By creating a presence at the home of the European Union, the University is at the heart of the political decision-making process. We are able to forge a network of contacts throughout the EU. The University of Wolverhampton in Brussels is located at Rue du Luxembourg, 3 Luxemburgstraat, 1000 Brussels and is a base for Tatiana Panteli, European Business and Research Development Manager. Tatiana works with the Project Support Office to facilitate University staff in networking with colleagues from other European Universities, Research Institutions, Industry European and International Organisations.
Preparing a grant application can be time and resource intensive and in addition to developing the scientific and scholarly concept of your research proposal there are other areas to take into account when writing and applying for research grants. The practical steps outlined below will signpost you to how to approach different aspects of the application process. This includes the full range of tasks from identifying suitable funding options, to structuring your grant application, costing the resources you will need to carry out the research, to thinking about reaching pathways of impact outside of the academic community and the strategic fit of your research to the University’s mission and vision for research and innovation and advancing our mission as the University of Opportunity.
