How to develop a strategic plan for funding your research

The continuity of research funding often makes or breaks a research career at the postdoctoral stage. As institutional core funding diminishes and external funding becomes more and more competitive, how do you build your re-sources systematically and mitigate the risk of gaps in funding?
The workshop explores the concept of strategy in the research context. Hav-ing a clear idea of your research direction facilitates aligning even small pro-jects to larger goals and makes individual proposals more compelling. It also helps to avoid the trap of letting funding dictate your research focus, which may lead to a fragmented track record. The goal of the workshop is to pro-vide guidance on how to approach the development of a strategic funding plan in the individual research setting. Participants will identify a portfolio of funding opportunities to be pursued in the coming years and manage the grant life cycle systematically to build the resources and capabilities neces-sary to deliver long-term sustainable research. A specific focus is on integrat-ing national and EU funding sources, including both MSCA Fellowships and ERC Starting Grants.

The workshop is designed for postdoctoral researchers who intend to consolidate their research career.
