This seminar will introduce the basic elements of the process of applying for external research funding.

The seminar will discuss questions such as: who is eligible to apply for external research funding? What are the major research funding organisations and programmes? Who can help me with what during the application process? How is the project budget constructed? What do I typically need to include in a funding proposal?

24/5 Lounge & Learn: Postdoc and Early Career Funding

Many research funding organisations have funding programmes intended only for junior researchers. These are often referred to as ”postdoc” or ”early career” grants and you can only apply for them during a window of a few years after your doctoral degree. This seminar will present a number of such funding programmes, their respective conditions and what you need to consider as an applicant.
