Basics of Grant Proposals (August 15th, 2024) – Online Training


A successful project application must fulfill requirements at different levels: Present your own scientific and strategic goals, take into account the objectives of the respective research organization and meet the regulations and requirements of the funding programmes as well as the requirements of the reviewer. This workshop examines these levels from different perspectives and provides participants with the tools they need to prepare their project proposal appropriately and present it successfully to the reviewers.

The workshop aims to provide participants with basic knowledge and tools for preparing their own postdoctoral research proposal in a compact seminar day. By presenting their own short exposés, participants gain practical knowledge that they can apply directly when preparing research proposals.
