Writing Grant Proposals (August 29th, 2023) – Online Training

The workshop deals with the theory of good writing, the basics of grant application, hands-on exercises on defining your aims, structuring a work plan and writing a grant summary. It combines lecture-style elements (e.g. overview of funding process and funding programmes) with active participation of participants (developing a grant summary).
