How to write a grant (focus on post-doc grant)

Katja Lubina (Leiden)

It is essential for young researchers to be able to obtain independent research funding in order to advance in their career. This workshop will provide you with insights on how to prepare and write competitive research proposals for individual grants, with a focus on Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships.

Aims and objectives:

We pay special attention to the purpose of the grant as envisioned by the grant organisation and how to make the proposal fit perfectly.

  • You will learn how to present your research project in the best possible way. This involves making the proposal both structured and concise, presenting yourself and the envisioned host institution properly and emphasising aspects such as innovation, uniqueness and relevance.

  • You will learn how you can accommodate the reader(s), in order to leave a good impression on the judging referees and committee.



This course is open for all students and will be offered via Zoom.  For registration please write an email to:
