Miriam Kilano Khider
Background and activities
My role is to help researchers at the Faculty of Engineering with international funding.
- By having a good overview of national and international (EU and others) funding opportunities, I will be able to help researchers to find suitable funding schemes within their field of interest.
- Lead and contribute to developing a research strategic and action plans, mainly for Horizon Europe, RCN and Early Career Researchers
- Develop annotated templates and writing tips for proposal writing (EU and RCN schemes)
- Develop applications/project proposals to EUs framework programs and associated programs (such as ERC, RIA, IA, MSCA (s), ERA-NET, EEA, and others) and to the Research Council of Norway.
- Assisting researchers in proposal writing to best address the evaluation criteria.
- Reviewing grant applications and proving feedback to optimise applications' chance of winning funding.
- Administrative support related to application and project management (pre and post-award) such as assisting with the EU portal administrative forms, grant agreement preparation process and the amendment process to the EC.
- Provide support during consortium agreement preparation in EU projects and other research projects
- Support and advice on career development
- Run workshops to train applicants in proposal writing and hold presentations on various topics related to funding opportunities.
- Develop handbooks and process notes to streamline administrative support
