The successful application for third-party funding is essential for the implementation of many research projects. Acquiring third-party funding is also an important component in building your academic career.
In this two-day workshop, the necessary tools for submitting an application are systematically conveyed – from the (further) development of your project idea, design of a project concept, through the search for suitable funding opportunities to the preparation of the specific application in German or English.
On the first day of the workshop, you create the basic structure of your application for your project idea. In the time between the two workshop days you will continue to work on your draft for your application, and on the second workshop day you will receive constructive feedback, which you can use to complete the application.
