AHP Research Funding Opportunities - CAHPR Cheshire and Merseyside

Funding opportunities can seem scarce and finding possible sources can seem rather mystifying, especially for more local and smaller scale projects, which can be just as valuable as larger scale studies.

The aim of this workshop is to provide information about possible sources of funding, and to invite a range of presenters who can talk about this.

There will also be speakers who will talk about their own experiences of being successful in obtaining funding, including related to Masters and PhD studies. There will also be time to ask questions.


Date: 24 May 13.00 - 15.30

Location: Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Teaching and Learning Building, Glasgow
