Faculty of Arts SSHRC Insight Development Grant Round-Table Workshop
The format of this workshop will be small round-table discussion groups based around disciplines. Participants are asked to bring their individual grant summary and budget to the workshop, and then each application (only the summary and budget) will be assessed and discussed by the other participants in their round-table discussion group. The aim of the workshop is both to approximate the review process that occurs in SSHRC and to help applicants by providing a range of peer-reviews on their proposals.
Where: Buchanan Penthouse
When: Wednesday, January 8th, 2014, from 12 – 2 PM.
