Detalls de l'event



Grant writing is arguably one of the most significant tasks for many scholars. Regardless of the career stage we are in, we all participate in the pursuit of funding opportunities, brainstorming potential project ideas, and attempting to transform those ideas into compelling research proposals.

The objective of this workshop is to equip Early Career Researchers (ECRs) with tools and guidance to tackle the challenge of grant writing. 

** Previous registration needed via email: eva.jove@uab.cat**


Speakers will touch upon the following topics:

  • What are the critical factors to consider when composing a grant application?
  • What are the most common pitfalls to avoid?
  • Do you have any valuable recommendations to offer?
  • As a reviewer, what do you look for in a grant application?
  • Are there any resources you could share with the participants?
