Applications for the 2020 Veterinary Management Group (VMG) research grants are now open. Practice staff, managers, clinicians and researchers are invited to apply for an award of up to £2000 to fund a research project to support the development of best practice in any area of veterinary business, leadership and management. The deadline for applications is 28 August.
The VMG launched its research grant scheme last year, to encourage either research that enhances understanding of the contemporary veterinary sector, including strategy, people, finance and marketing, or how management and leadership theory can be applied to the sector’s everyday work. Topics being researched by the current grant holders include gender and entrepreneurship, corporatisation, and career pathways. Further information, including the call for proposals, application form, and guidance notes are available at https://vetmg.com/vmg-research-awards
