From idea to project: Writing successful project proposals workshop
This workshop will enable you to apply for external funding of your own research. You will learn how to prepare a draft for a successful research project proposal.
Using own research ideas, you will train:
• how to present a project idea shortly and concisely (pitch presentation)
• 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

Symposium on Changing Seasonality
The CALENDARS project team warmly invite you to a symposium on Changing Seasonality to be held on Thursday the 5th of May from 09.00 - 15.30. Save the date
The symposium starts from seasons as cultural frameworks societies use to give meaning to annual cycles and organise activities over the year. It asks what happens to these seasonal frameworks in changeable times, and whether societies can transform their seasonal calendars to better fit shifting conditions. More information here: https://www.uib.no/kalenders-prosjektet/152342/‘changing-seasonality’-symposium-rethinking-what-seasons-mean-changeable
In addition to talks from an international, interdisciplinary team of scholars - including Barbara Adam, Michelle Bastian, Gordon Walker and David Macauley - the symposium will showcase some of the work in the CALENDARS project including a space for participants to experience art-science collaborative tools being developed, from documentary film to virtual reality simulations or re-making primstavs.
Places are limited and lunch and refreshments will be served, so please register on the website. Note that this webpage will be updated with a detailed programme and venue over the next two weeks. The symposium will be held in English.
We look forward to seeing you there.
