When it comes to getting your project funded, facing rejection can be difficult. But not to worry, our upcoming webinar is designed to demystify the elements of the decision process. Join us online at 1pm on Tuesday 22nd June, when WFT Chair Dr. Susan Liddy and Vice-Chair Jaro Waldeck will be talking with the decision makers in the BAI Sound and Vision scheme about the ins and outs of this funding process. BAI Managers, Deborah Molloy Bergin, Philip Cooper and Sara McNamara will give us valuable insight into what makes an application successful.
