Before booking a workshop, please make sure that you can attend for the entire duration.



For doctoral researchers of all disciplines with no or little experience in Grant Proposal Writing.



Successful Grant Proposal Writing is a fundamental basis to fund a career in research. There are plenty of national and international funding programs with different funding schemes. Each scheme has its individual context and thematic focus, eligibility and funding rules, submission and evaluation process, and evaluation criteria.Thus, the detailed features and aspects of a successful proposal in one funding scheme are naturally differing from those of a successful proposal in another funding scheme. However, the process of how to work out these details is a common denominator to the different funding schemes. It requires skills way beyond the ability to work out a research idea in detail.



This workshop focuses on how to develop your idea for a project into a sound work program, how to match it to the requirements of the funding program and how to facilitate the communication with the reviewer by presenting your complex ideas in an easy to understand way.

To achieve this we will try out the RaumZeit Toolkit for designing and communicating your research project convincingly by working on your own research project. This may be a new idea for a real Grant Proposal or your current research project. Besides, you will obtain a lot of background information on different funding programs, evaluation processes and potential pitfalls.

Session 1: Funding Programs and how to read the documents
Session 2: Develop your idea into a workplan
Session 3: Communicate your project convincingly
Session 4: Impact and Budget

Further Information

Participants need to bring along their own idea for a research project!

If there are free spots, we also allow postdocs to participate.


For workshops held online, participation is allowed under the following conditions: a working camera that is turned on and a microphone to allow active participation in discussions and group work. Headphones must also be used to protect other participants from office eavesdroppers. In this context, we would also like to refer to the rules for digital courses at Freie Universität Berlin (Code of Conduct).
