RED has a team of four Research and Knowledge Exchange Development Managers – one to support each faculty at CCCU. That’s a long job title, but what do we actually do?
RED provides a ‘one stop shop’ for academic colleagues in CCCU looking to develop funded research and/or knowledge exchange projects. The RKEDMs can support you with any RKE funding that has an application process. We can help through the entire process of developing your application or just when you need some additional support, from:
- developing your initial project idea
- finding an appropriate funding source
- offering guidance as you write your application (including helping you create a project budget)
- liaising with the relevant departments and Schools within CCCU for internal approval and peer review
- submitting the application, and if successful
- setting up the project.
Please let us know whenever you are thinking of applying for funding even if you don’t need any support. This means we can track all bidding activity and we can let you know if there are any competing applications being developed across the university.
We also have a bank of submitted funding applications (both successful and unsuccessful) along with feedback to help anyone considering applying to the same funder.
