Grant Writing

Level:
Foundation
Area:
Medical Communication
Code:
MCF12
Duration:
03:00:00
Workshop profile:
Researchers who wish to improve the likelihood of getting funds by increasing the quality of their grant applications, and medical writers who would like to assist researchers in writing and improving such applications.
Objective:
To increase understanding of grant-provider expectations and priorities, and learn how to translate ideas into strictly defined quantifiable projects.
Content:
Competition for research funding is increasing, and well-written grant applications can open or close doors for research careers. An important workshop topic is matching research ideas with funders’ objectives. For EU applications equal emphasis is placed on a project’s scientific and technical quality, possibility of implementation and expected impact. Being most interested in the science, researchers tend to underestimate the importance of the last two points, which constitute two thirds of the evaluation criteria. The workshop will address these issues.
