Successful third party funding acquisition is one crucial performance indicator in science. Moreover, good scientific projects need financial support from third party funding. In light of limited public funding, the securing of sources of financial support is an important task for a scientist. However, for many early-career scientists writing grant applications poses some difficulties and at first glance seems overwhelming.

Even though there is no guaranteed success, the methods and instruments of writing proposals can be learnt. A prerequisite is an attractive project concept. If a convincingly formulated application is submitted, the chances of securing funding are good.

This workshop delivers proven grant application knowledge. It shows how strategic considerations naturally lead to a sound proposal
