Bootcamps, Coming soon !

Bootcamp - PREPARE a scientific proposal

How to PREPARE a scientific proposal / application / tender response

Knowing how to prepare a scientific proposal, and how to articulate and align your ideas with the priorities of those providing funding, is a critical skill for any scientist. Proposals may be needed for external or internal grant funding from the government, not-for-profit and private sectors. While they may vary in length and required content, the basic principles are the same. 

Designed to be professional development that you only need to do once! 

You will leave the Bootcamp with knowledge and tools you can apply immediately and forever.

In this Sativus Bootcamp you’ll learn:

  • the realities of proposal preparation, review and assessment
  • how to align your idea with organisational priorities
  • how to clarify and better articulate the scope, proposed outcome and methods of your idea
  • how to better integrate risk management into your proposal
  • how to answer reviewer questions in your proposal, before they’ve asked them!


This Bootcamp is ideal for anyone working in a field or role that requires scoping, preparation and advocacy for scientific proposals / applications / tender responses.

Includes:

  • Individual one-on-one session with the course facilitator 
  • Access to the Sativus GEMS online Bootcamp course 
  • An intensive 4 hour interactive virtual session 
  • Feedback on your proposal development 
  • Proposal development resource to keep 

 

What you need to bring:

  • An idea you’re planning on proposing that will be used for practical activities during the bootcamp
  • A computer with reliable internet access (i.e. maintain 4 hours continuous connection so you don’t miss any of the content)
  • A clear space to work, with minimal distractions


To maximise the value for participants, places are limited.

Bootcamp - REVIEW a scientific proposal

How to REVIEW a scientific proposal / application / tender response

Reviewing scientific proposals can be complicated and overwhelming, especially if you manage a program that receives numerous applications. You need to be able to understand what’s being proposed and how this potentially aligns with organisational funding priorities, neither of which you may be an expert in! Good ideas can be rejected and poor ideas progressed if the research manager isn’t on their game. 

Designed to be professional development that you only need to do once! 

You will leave the Bootcamp with knowledge and tools you can apply immediately and forever.

In this Sativus Bootcamp you’ll learn:

  • the realities of proposal preparation, review and assessment
  • how to identify and manage biases
  • how to ask the right questions
  • how to identify key risks and issues in a proposed scientific idea
  • how to better plan for outcomes and provide value to end-users and investors
  • how to generate a recommendation for a proposal and articulate feedback to the submitter


This Bootcamp is ideal for anyone working in a field or role that requires review, analysis and / or provision of recommendations for RD&E investment on scientific proposals / applications/tender responses.

Includes:

  • Individual one-on-one session with the course facilitator
  • Access to the Sativus GEMS online Bootcamp course 
  • An intensive 4 hour interactive virtual session 
  • Feedback on your review and recommendations 
  • Proposal review tip sheet resource to keep

 

What you need to bring:

  • A proposal that has been reviewed previously (don’t bring one that has not yet been reviewed as reviewing the proposal as part of this Bootcamp will likely bias your understanding and interpretation compared to other proposals submitted in the same round).
  • Organisational strategy/plan that outlines the funding priorities for your organisation or program.
  • A computer with reliable internet access (i.e. maintain 4 hours continuous connection so you don’t miss any of the content).
  • A clear space to work, with minimal distractions.
