Grant-Writing Coaching for ERC Starting and Consolidator Applicants

Course objectives:
1. To encourage you to write the proposal early. We hope to minimize the stress of last-minute submission, and help you structure the project better.
2. To give you two-tier feedback. You will receive detailed feedback on the first draft of one application section of your choice; after rewriting you will receive follow-up feedback.
3. To help you respond correctly to the key evaluation criteria of novelty, feasibility, impact, ground-breaking nature, and ambition.
4. To improve the CV and EATR (achievements track record) sections.

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!
