Boost Your Career: Grants In Practice

Grants In Practice event series

Here, students, researchers and administrators can learn directly from experts and current grantees or alumni:

  • What types of grants there are and when are the calls?
  • What kind of documents and skills are needed for application?
  • How can researchers and institutions benefit?
  • How does the evaluation process work?
  • How to optimize your proposal, how to find hosts, and how things work once you get the grant!

This event series focuses --for now-- on the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships (IF) and European Research Council (ERC) grants.
