Within the RBI Rebecca forms part of the research facilitation team. She assists DMU’s academics to develop research funding applications for classically academic “blue skies” ideas. Typically these concepts are at the earliest stage of the research spectrum and are submitted to funders such as the Research Councils, or charities who fund research by peer review such as the Leverhulme Trust and the Wellcome Trust (amongst others). The Research Facilitation Team work with individual researchers to help ensure that the funding applications they submit are of the highest possible standard and aimed at the correct funder for the concept, both through acting as a critical friend when developing bids and through the implementation of DMU’s internal peer review process. There is no standard format for the help we offer – as a professional service we try to provide both help and support that is tailored to the needs of the individual academic and the specific project they are developing.
