PD Sessions @ Zoom: Grantsmanship on a shoestring: A training preview

This PD Session is proudly sponsored by F1 Solutions.

In October 2020, Thorsten and James presented a highly popular PD @ Zoom session outlining the motivation for a ‘grantsmanship’ training program which they had designed to upskill and motivate a diverse group of central and faculty-based UTS research support staff. It was delivered face-to-face in 2019 and online in 2020.

Due to the subsequent interest from the ARMS community, Thorsten and James return to offer an appetiser of key grantsmanship concepts and interactive exercises covered in the program’s three training sessions:

  • Session 1: Fundamental concepts, Project success factors, Articulating benefit & impact
  • Session 2: Track record, Team composition, External collaboration, Institutional alignment
  • Session 3: Budget design, Justifications and Feasibility

DATE: 17 August 2022

TIME: 12pm - 1pm AEST


Thorsten Kostulski

University of Technology Sydney

Thorsten began his professional career as a telecommunications engineer in Germany. After settling in Sydney in 2001, he conducted research in the CRC for Satellite Systems and completed his PhD at UTS in 2008. He continued in an academic teaching & research role for several years before joining the UTS Research Office in 2011. As Research Development Manager, he was initially responsible for managing external grant applications, predominantly major ARC rounds. He gradually moved into a more strategic role, with a focus on analysing ARC success factors, providing strategic advice to researchers, supporting the university’s policy development for Cat 1 grants and providing grantsmanship training to researcher and professional staff communities at UTS.

James joined UTS in Nov 2016 as a Research Development Manager. In April 2018 he joined the Research Capability & Development team, responsible for building capability in the UTS research community to improve the quality and impact of their research and research funding applications, and develop and deliver research enrichment activities. He combines his significant editing, technical writing and publishing experience with a solid understanding of ARC policies and scheme success criteria to help researchers strategically position their proposals for success. James enjoys being an active member of ARMS and has just completed a four-year term on the NSW Chapter Committee, three of these as co-convenor.
