DivE-Q Event: New workshop “Writing Grant Proposals in Science” – Registration open

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, securing 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 over-whelming. 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. The participants receive theoretical input and engage with the various aspects through guided exercises. These include group exercises, and individual exercises, both with guided plenum discussions.

In this workshop, you will …

  •  find out which leadership style suits you best and receive an appropriate “toolbox”
  • develop solutions not only for the classic bottom-up principle, but also leadership from below and lateral leadership
  • get an overview of different leadership models (TCI, GRPI) and tools (self-leadership, delegation, etc.) that support your own leadership role
  • be encouraged to manage complex processes confidently and pragmatically
  • be encouraged to reflect on which of your competencies you are already using and what you can do in addition to be or become a respected, responsible and confident leader
  • be able to establish a direct link to your everyday work by a mixture of short theoretical inputs and small practical exercises
