Funding ‘Outside the Box': How to Source Alternative Streams of Income to Fund Your Ageing Research

Thursday 31 August 2017
1pm - 2pm AEST (please check local times)

Research funding is in great demand, but relatively short supply. Many traditional funding schemes are highly competitive and characterised by very low success rates. For emerging researchers in particular, there is a need to be creative in identifying alternative sources of funding.

This webinar will highlight a number of alternative sources of research funding ‘outside the box' of traditional sources. Three panel members with experience of sourcing funding in the alternative realm, including crowd funding, industry and philanthropic sources, will discuss their experiences:

Dr Tim Henwood
Group Manager, Connected Living - Community Wellness & Lifestyle, Southern Cross Care SA & NT; Principal @ AgeFIT Solutions

Dr Katherine Kent
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Centre for Rural Health, University of Tasmania

Emily Millane
Research Fellow, Tax and Transfer Policy Institute, Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University

Participants will hear about both the advantages and drawbacks of alternative research funding, and identify key strategies for success.
