21 May: In the head of an evaluator

The aim of the seminar is to give an understanding of the evaluation process for research proposals and the approach taken by evaluators in scoring proposals. The seminar will reflect on what is required to score well on the evaluation criteria, what features highly ranked proposals have in common as well as pitfalls to avoid.

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The seminar offers an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into what makes a proposal impressive and thereby an insight into how to present the case for funding more convincingly.

The seminar will be led by Professor Tobias Richards, who has been an evaluator for VR, and Docent Peter Ahlström, who has been an evaluator for the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

Time: 12:00–12:45
Venue: C728

Register at the latest: 16 May (web form)

September: Social Innovation

According to the classical definition, innovation should lead to something tangible like patents, new enterprises and jobs. Social innovation goes beyond this since its main purpose is not primarily commercial but strives to meet environmental and societal needs. New products, services, methods, business models, or working strategies that contribute to a better and more sustainable society. This seminar will explain the different aspects of, and give examples of social innovation.

Time: Date and time will be set later.
Venue: Science Park Borås, Floor 2.5, Textile Fashion Center
