Online Seminar
[WEBINAR] Grant Proposal Development: How to design and communicate your research project convincingly for funding bodies (four half-day sessions)
26.05.2020, 09:00 - 12:30

The workshop will be held online and run for four half-day sessions, on May 26, May 27, June 2 and June 3, 2020, 09:00 am - 12:30 pm.


Developing successful grant applications is an essential skill for a career in research. In this workshop you will learn tools and background information that, on the one hand, will help you to efficiently develop your research idea into a research project which matches your target funding programme and, on the other hand, to write it up in a grant proposal of high quality.



  • Get an overview on funding programmes and how you can use them for driving your career as a researcher
  • Develop your own idea for a research project proposal into a first work-plan
  • Understand how to match your research project to the funding programme in order to increase the potential to be funded
  • Understand the basics of budget planning
  • Acquire basic skills for formulating objectives, progress beyond the state of the art and impact
  • Try out a set of tools to efficiently develop a research proposal.



  • Presentation of background information
  • Applying the RaumZeit toolkit to your own idea for a research project
  • Group work
  • Feedback from trainer and peers


Please note: Participants who enter the workshop with an idea for a research project will benefit the most from its program. The idea may be newly developed, or you have been thinking about it for quite some time. However, a prior project idea is not a pre-requisite for successfully participating.


Technical requirements: To participate in this workshop, you need a stable internet connection, a webcam and a microphone. Participants will receive further detailed information regarding the online-platform prior to the workshop.


Eligibility: Since this event is organised by the KHYS Postdoc Office, postdocs (who are members of KHYS) will have priority for attending. Doctoral researchers, however, can still register and will be offered a spot if not all places are taken.


Kosten/ Zahlungsweise For KHYS members this workshop is free of charge.
