Researchers at all postdoctoral stages preparing a grant proposal
There are plenty of national and international funding programmes with different funding schemes. Each scheme has its individual context and thematic focus, eligibility and funding rules, submission and evaluation process, and evaluation criteria. Therefore, I will introduce a general process of grant proposal writing which you can apply to any funding programme. With this background knoweldge we will investigate those core aspects of winning grants which are most relevant for a successful communication with the reviewer.
We will discuss the following topics:
Identification of the right funding scheme
The overall grant proposal writing process
Communicating with the reviewer
Setting up a concept: results, objectives, work plan
Mapping the research idea to the framework of the funding programme and the reviewers’ perspectives
Structuring the proposal
Visualising the progress beyond state-of-the-art in a nutshell
The art of formulating the text and highlighting the impact
Expert input, discussions, exercises, feedback, training manual, photo protocol
You need to bring at least your own idea for a proposal. Optionally, you may also send a proposal draft to the trainer two weeks in advance of the workshop.
