Consumer and citizen engagement and the search for philanthropic grants
This free session from Sleep Week is designed for early career researchers covers engaging consumers in research, harnessing the potential of citizen science approaches, and how to pitch for philanthropic grants.
The speakers are Shantel Duffy (Deputy Director of the Healthy Brain Ageing Program and Leader of the Lifestyle, Exercise and Physical Activity Program in the Healthy Brain Ageing Clinic, University of Sydney), Samantha Rowbotham (Lecturer in Health Policy at the University of Sydney) and Sinthia Bosnic-Anticevich (Woolcock Institute of Medical Research). Shantel Duffy's session is titled Engaging consumers in research. Samantha Rowbotham currently leads a program of research with the Australian Prevention Partnership Centre exploring the potential of citizen science approaches as a means of engaging the public in research, policy and practice in chronic disease prevention. In this session she will provide an introduction to citizen science approaches and situate these in relation to other forms of public engagement in research and decision-making. She will discuss examples of citizen science approaches from her own work and the work of others in order to stimulate discussion on how these approaches might be applied in the field of sleep research. Sinthia Bosnic-Anticevich's session is titled Philanthropic grants: where are they and how can I get one?
