Writing a proposal for research funding is a very specific skill. The “Starting a Grant proposal” School of the University of Milano-Bicocca offers the opportunity to Ph.D. students and early-stage researchers to explore how to write a proposal that stands out among the others.
Five days to work up on your writing and on project applications with colleagues from different backgrounds and disciplines. The Winter School will be divided into sets of lessons and activities following a hands-on approach on project writing. Activities and lectures will cover all the steps necessary to convey a successful grant proposal, from conceptualization to writing.
The interdisciplinary spirit of the School is aimed at enhancing cooperation among researchers from different fields of research: a tremendous opportunity to create a network of researchers, share knowledge and widen each other's perspective on how to approach grant writing.
High-profile speakers with an international scientific record will provide insights about the aspects that are usually more valued by reviewers and essential to achieve high evaluation scores. The School encourages the creation of small multi-disciplinary groups that will work in synergy to create innovative and interdisciplinary grant proposal ideas.
