From idea to project: Writing successful project proposals – 2023

From idea to project: Writing successful project proposals – 2023

When: 1-2 June 2023
Where: University of Bergen
Credit: 1 ECTS
Workshop leaders: Friederike U. Hoffmann, Research coordinator at GFI and EU expert evaluator; Mahaut de Vareilles, Research adviser and scientific project manager at GFI; Nadine Goris, Researcher and research adviser at NORCE
Target group : early career scientists (PhD, Post Doc, early career researchers) in climate sciences with little or no experience in proposal writing. The workshop targets both those who already have a concrete project idea and a plan to write a proposal, and those who want to gain general proposal writing skills.
Maximum number of participants: 15


Registration deadline: 2 May

The workshop will enable you to apply for external funding of your own research. You will learn how to develop a research idea into a draft for a successful research project proposal.

Using own research ideas, you will learn:

  • how to present a project idea shortly and concisely (pitch presentation)
  • how to develop and sharpen your research idea
  • how to plan and structure a draft proposal
  • how to develop the different components of the draft proposal
  • how to draft a project budget
  • where you can apply for funding

The course includes lectures, group work and plenary discussion. During the workshop, the participants will develop the project ideas of 3 participants into ready-to-use draft proposals.

Priorities if the workshop is overbooked: 50% of the slots to CHESS members, 50% to employees from NORCE Climate and Environment and GFI. Among these, participants who bring own project ideas will be prioritized.
