The continuing education program "Designing and Managing Research Projects" (Entwicklung und Management von Forschungsprojekten – EMF) is a collaborative project between Universität Kassel and Philipps-Universität Marburg and targets junior scholars from all faculties and disciplines of both participating universities who intend to apply for third-party funding in the near future. The goal of this offering is to convey the knowledge and skills necessary for junior scholars to receive appropriate funding for their own research and further develop their academic profile.
The three-year program consists of a two-year workshop phase and a further year for submitting a third-party-funding application.

The program ends with an internal assessment of the participants' third-party-funding applications by the EMF Advisory Board.

Structure of the Continuing Education Program

The workshops are organized into five modules that reflect the course of a third-party-funded project. They can be offered in German or English. Participants can attend courses and activities offered in Marburg (under the category of "EMF") and in Kassel. The five mandatory workshops are offered once a year under the same heading both in Kassel and in Marburg.

  • CC – Cross-Category Courses and Activities
  • PD – Project Design and Application
  • PM – Project Management
  • PR – Presentation of Research Projects
  • TR – Transfer

The workshops are offered at different dates throughout the year in German and in English.
