Not sure what to submit to the RAE? What is impact, and how can Humanities and Social Sciences researchers achieve it? How do we write a research narrative? Want to improve your GRF chances? How are external reviewers chosen? What makes for an effective grant application? Should I apply again if I get 3.5? How important is having a Hong Kong dimension? Chris Berry has been on various RGC panels, including the GRF, since 2007. He has been through RAE exercises in Australia and the UK. He will offer his insights from these experiences and answer your questions.
