Dr. Thomas Bryer

Professor, School of Public Administration, University of Central Florida, Orlando


Great ideas and solid research are just part of a winning project; one of the biggest obstacles to success is securing the funds necessary to carry it out. Often the pursuit is further complicated by involving other team members in this task. The rewards of including collaborators, both close to home and abroad, however, can garner great rewards. Having successfully led and secured several collaborations, both nationally and internationally, Dr. Bryer will take participants through some of the many considerations and strategies that may be employed. From determining what grants to apply for to assembling the team and writing the application, this workshop will give participants the tools to take their first steps in drawing up a successful project application, to revise successful individual projects to include multi-member collaboration, or to broaden their scope and impact through the creation of multi-national or multi-team ventures.
