Supporting early career researchers – succeeding through failure
To help understand the impact of how funders work, we’re asking early career researchers who have submitted a funding application to Wellcome to tell us about:
- the impact of a successful versus an unsuccessful funding application on their productivity
- how they use feedback, and if feedback on unsuccessful proposals is linked to future success or failure
- how they define excellence.
We’re collaborating with Gemma Derrick and her team at Lancaster University on this work.
We will be inviting researchers who have applied to Wellcome to participate and hope to share the findings by the autumn of 2020.
