If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jo Griffiths.

Philip Guildford, Director of Research at the Department of Engineering, will describe the key differences between Research Councils and industry – what they look for, how they like to work, what irritates them. He will tell you how to decide which to approach and how to position your research propositions for the two different audiences.

Philip illustrates his presentations with war stories from his decade in helping researchers to sell – so be prepared to hear the key lessons and entertaining examples of both what to do and what to avoid.

Bring along your questions and be prepared for an open and interesting debate.

This presentation is open to all and postdocs, in particular, will find it useful in developing their next bid for funds.

Date and Time: Friday 30th January 2015, 12:00 Venue: PostDoc Society of Cambridge, 16 Mill Lane, Cambridge

Lunch will be served from 12:00 and Philip will start his presentation at 12:30, finishing at 13:30 with networking and questions until 14:00
