Good projects need money in order to be put into practice. Academic research can only be performed with financial support through third-party funding. Thus, the securing of sources of financial support – whether classic science-funding organisations, foundations or companies – is an important task for scientists. However, for many early-career scientists writing grant applications is difficult and seems overwhelming.
Although there is no guaranteed path to be successful in grant applications, the methods and instruments of writing proposals can be learnt. A prerequisite is an attractive project concept. If a convincingly formulated application is then submitted, the chances of success are good.
The workshop communicates proven grant application knowledge. It conveys the logic structure of a grant proposal and shows how strategic initial considerations regarding style, argumentation and form lead to a sound proposal.

Intended Learning Outcomes:

• You know about quality criteria of grant proposals from the reviewers perspective.
• You are able to strategically structure your proposal writing activities.
• You know about the structure of a grant proposal and will be able to structure it in a meaningful, convincing way.
• You are able to convincingly convey your project concept.
• You have your personal strategy for the next grant proposal.

Didactic Methods:

Presentation by trainer, group work, individual exercises, writing practice
