Training Course Grants for Individuals, Spring 2018

Are you (planning on) submitting a Rubicon or Marie Curie Individual Fellowship proposal in 2018? Or are you (planning on) submitting a Veni proposal in January 2019 and want to start early? Could you use some guidance in writing your proposal? Then register for the Spring 2018 session of the training ‘Grants for Individuals’. Contact your funding advisor Merle Achten before Tuesday 5 December for more information.

The training is for young researchers in the last year of their PhD research up to three years after completion of their PhD. The aim of the training is to prepare you for competitive individual grant schemes (e.g. Marie Curie, Rubicon, Veni and other (less known) schemes which address this audience). There are two training sessions every year: one in Spring and one in Fall. The Spring session runs from February till June.

The training is centered around actual research proposals: you enter the training with their own draft proposal, and finish with a version that is ready to submit. During the training you will review other proposals, rewrite your draft, present your proposal and refine your presentation.

The training consists of two general information sessions, writing skills sessions and presentation skills sessions. Based on these meetings, you will keep on working on their proposal and presentation. You need to upload their (updated) proposal into the Virtual Research Environment regularly.

To be able to participate you need:
• To be preparing a grant proposal which you are to submit to an individual grant scheme, in the near future.
• To have full support from your Principal Investigator/department chair /supervisor, and the faculty funding advisor. The aim of this is to ensure that you meet the requirement of the funding scheme, receives sufficient support and time to complete the training and to work on their proposal. The work involved in the training is quite intensive.

The participants will be divided into 2-4 subgroups, depending on the total number. Due to the limited number of participants, a selection process will take place. Your funding advisor Merle Achten can register you for the selection process.

Deposit
Participation requires your commitment and effort (and your Principal Investigator/department chair /supervisor). Due to experiences in the past and the expenses we have for organising the training, a deposit of € 1000,- will be requested. This will have to be paid by the department/supervisor.
When you have shown sufficient participation (present during both information sessions, missed no more than other 1 meeting and has shown active participation, as evidenced by e.g. timely submission of homework), the deposit will be refunded after the training.

Want to participate? Contact your funding advisor!
So if you are (planning on) writing an application for a personal grant, such as Rubicon, Marie Curie or Veni, if you could use some guidance on writing your proposal and you can spend time on the training from February till June, contact your funding advisor Merle Achten (merle.achten@maastrichtuniversity.nl) before December 5. She can give you more information on the expected commitment, the training dates and register you if you want to participate.

After registration you will receive information on the selection interview.
