Developing a Research Question, Aim, and Plan
This third Community of Practice (CoP) session in the ICRC-S 2015-16 series will focus on “Developing a (Fundable) Research Question, Aim and Plan.” Learn about resources and strategies that you can use to create a fundable proposal for suicide prevention research collaborations. You’ll also hear what funders are looking for in a proposal, some common pitfalls researchers should avoid, and how you can take your passions and interests and turn them into science. You will also hear from one experienced researcher as she shares her practical experience related to this topic. This CoP is designed to continue to lay a foundation for the remaining sessions and for your upcoming application to the ICRC-S’s 2016 Research Training Institute.
