Workshop: Grant Writing Part II

09.00 – 12.00
Louise Mennen, Mennen Training and Consultancy

Wondering how to turn a research idea into a convincing proposal? This introductory workshop for early-career researchers may be exactly what you need. You will learn how to strike the right balance between the peer and non-peer readers of your proposal. You will learn how to structure your text, present your proposal from an improved ‘sales’ perspective, and write clear and concise, reader-friendly, persuasive texts. You will also learn which criteria are important for a grant proposal and what referees are looking for.

This interactive workshop consists of an afternoon session followed by a morning session.
