The workshop aims to prepare participants to independently acquire third-party funding. It will provide participants with an overview of the most important (national and European) funding agencies and schemes for their current career stage. It will also explore strategies for how to find the right funding program. Participants are also taught the basics of application design by addressing the following questions, among others: What are the elements of a funding proposal? Who reads the proposal? How do I establish a connection between my project and the funding program? Common review procedures and evaluation criteria will be presented, and insights into formal and informal aspects of the review process will be provided. Success factors and strategies for the application process will be discussed, and participants will be shown how they can handle rejected applications.
