RFA Development and Marketing [HRA Members Meeting, Virtual, Spring 2020]

In this session, we explored best practices for RFA development for new scientific areas, and marketing existing and new RFAs. In particular, speakers discussed how to get input from innovators in a field new to the funder for a new RFA, key elements of a well-written RFA, and novel ideas for marketing your RFA to both traditional and expanded audiences. We also examined this topic from the viewpoint of diversity and how RFAs can be written and marketed to ensure that underrepresented groups are reached and feel encouraged to participate.
