Cours générique

Grant writing - 2016

This course aims to help you to write a grant-writing: it will happen via a video conference, so you will get an individual feedback on your proposals.

The course combines initial lecture time and group discussion with one-on-one consulting sessions.

The instructor will split her time between all proposals, meaning that the time of consulting will be shared between participants. However, the level of support you will receive is higher than that in a standard workshop. So you should get a great benefit from this course!

These sessions will take place during lunchtime (5 sessions from 1pm to 2 pm on June 30, July 1, 4, 5 & 6) via video conference lectures of 45 mins + 2 one-on-one email coaching sessions  and 1 final feedback session. The course will be taught in English.

ERC Starting and Consolidator applicants who are planning to submit proposals in the 2016/2017 season; postdocs who wish to apply in the future are welcome to audit the course.

A motivation letter, indicating if the candidate intends to apply to forthcoming ERC calls. 10 participants.

1. To encourage you to write the proposal early. We hope to minimize the stress of last-minute submissions, and help you produce a better planned proposal.
2. To provide one-on-one consulting support on a key section of the application. We recommend you focus on either B2 Methods or the full B1 section.
3. To give you two-tier feedback. You will receive detailed feedback on the first draft; after you rewrite incorporating the instructor’s comments, you will receive follow-up feedback on draft 2.
4. To help you interpret and respond correctly to non-scientific evaluation criteria, such as innovation, feasibility, scientific & broader impacts, and leadership potential & international career prospects of the applicant.
5. To coach you through the process of early planning through a series of brief homework assignments. The homework will be your best opportunity to receive additional feedback on parts of the proposal the instructor will not consult on in Part 2.
