We invite you to join us on this journey through the application process and develop your own proposal.

  • DFG review process -- structure and steps

Teaching formats: presentations, group discussions, group work, individual work, peer advising

Workshop & writing language: English

Target group: postdocs with a research idea for a DFG grant. Doctoral students nearing the end of their PhD phase can also participate.
