Early Career Researcher mentoring

In 2011 ILWS ran the Research Development Program (RDP) for early career or developing researchers as a trial for future application to enhance research at CSU. The program, which included a series workshops and mentoring sessions, was developed to meet the CSU strategic requirement for increased research outputs. The report on the outcomes of the program includes findings and recommendations.

The 2010-2011 the Research Development Program for early career researchers included many useful presentations which may assist you in finding a grant, information on creating a team and partnerships and more.
