The Society has brought together a new series of resources for grant reviewers, with topics including good practice for reviewing, conflicts of interest, unconscious bias and the benefits for those who give their time and expertise to review.
Our grants programme relies on over 30 academic reviewers each year, reviewing more than 180 grant applications.
We are also seeking researchers and academics at all stages of their careers to increase the size and diversity of the group we call upon to review, and ensure we are receiving input from a broad range of perspectives.
For those new to the process, we offer an introductory webinar and mentoring to provide support and advice. Find out more about becoming a reviewer for the Society.
As well as supporting the academic community, becoming a grant reviewer can have many benefits for reviewers themselves, including insights into current and planned research and improving their own grant applications.
