Dr. Peter Dukes of the UK’s Medical Research Council (MRC), is coming to Stavanger to hold a course in how to write a successful research proposal. Core to the course, is a ‘mock’ peer review panel, in which participants will play the role of reviewers.

Course leader

Peter Dukes is Assistant Director of the UK Africa Research Development Office, which is based in The Gambia.  Peter’s previous responsibilities at the MRC in the UK include managing research funding boards and the programme of research fellowships and studentships.  He has many years of experience in grant writing, peer review and shaping of research strategies and funding.

Course design

The course is designed to help scientists to write better research proposals by developing their understanding of peer review and what funding organisations expect from a good proposal. Core to the course, is a ‘mock’ peer review panel, in which participants will play the role of reviewers. They will evaluate real proposals and decide which to recommend for funding.

In the course, we will work on three proposal drafts from UiS researchers. Thus, this is a great opportunity for some UiS researchers to get feedback on their drafts! The drafts are expected to be mature, though does not have to be ready for submission.
