18 October saw the TUTECH ACADEMY Workshop “Grant Acquisition – How to produce a winning proposal”.
Five experienced researchers and research managers from different institutes in Germany met for a workshop at Tutech in Hamburg’s Harburg district. They had signed up with the goal of getting an overview of the funding landscape for research projects and learning at first hand how to write a successful proposal. The workshop looked at the European framework programme Horizon 2020, which provided the backdrop for concrete examples of how to organise a proposal efficiently and what needs to be taken into account when setting a budget.
The workshop draws on the experience of colleagues in the Consultancy and Competence Development team, built up in the course of numerous publicly-funded projects. Content ranges from submitting the proposal to project management and completion. No prior knowledge is required, and the workshop is targeted at newcomers to proposal writing as well as researchers with experience in this area.
This time I was fortunate to be working with a group of very experienced and highly motivated participants. I’m delighted that they were very satisfied with the workshop. The lively atmosphere and interaction by participants were a real pleasure.
Trainer Dr Margarete Remmert-Rieper
As one day is not long enough to exhaust the full potential of the workshop and share all the relevant information, there will be a follow-up workshop on 14.11.18 entitled “Addressing ‘Impact’ in Research Proposals”. The emphasis here will be on a particularly important aspect of proposal submissions: convincingly conveying the potential benefits and impacts of the research project.
These workshops can also be booked as in-house workshops.
