Working Group 3 – Project Funding Procurement
(WP Leader: Dr Kevin McGuigan, RCSI).
The primary function of this Working Group is to coordinate and support the preparation and submission of Global Health research proposals from RCSI-DCU-NUIM researchers to major funding agencies such as Irish Aid, the European Union Framework Program (FP7 & Horizon 2020), SFI, Enterprise Ireland as well as philanthropic bodies (e.g. Wellcome Trust, the Bill & Melinda Gates, Rockefeller, Ford, UN, Wennergen, Aga Khan Foundation, etc.). These proposals will target research themes identified in WG1 (Workshops) and further developed through WG2 (STSM) networking activities.
Support activities which will be available include:
- Provision of short-term (2-3 week) teaching replacements for coordinators of large funding applications.
- Financial support for hosting consortium meetings for prospective collaborators in large-scale funding applications.
