Planning the Pathway To Impact for GRF and ECS 2020/21 (HK)
This webinar was run on 26th September 2019 for Hong Kong-based academics and research office staff who are involved with grant applications. The Hong Kong’s Research Grants Council (RGC) has once again invited applications for the General Research Fund (GRF) 2020/21 and the Early Career Scheme (ECS) 2020/21. For this round of applications, RGC requires all applicants to explain: (1) how they will capture their impact; (2) how they will identify their potential beneficiaries and stakeholders; (3) what their planned activities will be; and (4) what evidence they are going to collect for impact reporting and how.
