WORKSHOP: Understand the review process - Learn to think like a grant proposal evaluator


The competition for funding from national and international research councils is increasingly tough, and only the very best grant proposals succeed. Through your grant proposal you want to engage and win the good will of the review panel from the very first sentence, but to achieve that you need to understand how reviewers think and work. This workshop will not only teach you the details of the enigmatic grant review process, but you will also get your hands wet and experience for yourself what it is like to review grants.

Mastering the genre of grant proposals is increasingly important if you want to pursue an academic career. In this workshop, we will go through all the elements of the grant review process. You will also get experience with grant proposal evaluation yourself and even have your own research idea evaluated by your peers.
