GFI Veni pre-proposal course, Spring 2020

Are you preparing a Veni for ZonMw, AES or SSH in January 2021? If so, you need to submit a pre-proposal early September 2020.

Do you want to know how to best structure your pre-proposal? Could you use some guidance in how to frame your pre-proposal? Do you want to know how funding proposals are reviewed? Then register before Friday 27 March for the Spring 2020 training ‘Grants for Individuals – Veni pre-proposals’.

Grants for Individuals is a training intended for young researchers who are preparing a Veni pre-proposal. The upcoming training session runs from April until June 2020.

This training provides hand-on advice and support in the writing process; you enter the training with your own draft proposal, and finish with a version that is (nearly) ready to submit. During the training, you will review other proposals and rewrite your own draft several times. The training also includes a presentation skills session to sharpen your written proposal. Using the feedback and insights from these meetings, you will continue to work on your own proposal. This means that we expect you to upload a rewritten version of your proposal prior to every writing session.

The training takes place in small groups of 2-4 researchers on either Tuesdays or Thursdays (all half-day sessions). Due to the limited number of participants, a selection process will take place based on CV. We will notify candidates about their enrolment by 3 April the latest.

The programme looks as follows:

  • Introduction day: Thursday 9 April, 9.00-12.00
  • Skills sessions in sub groups: Tuesdays or Thursdays
  • Presentation 1: 14 April or 16 April
  • Writing 1: 12 May or 7 May
  • Writing 2: 26 May or 28 May
  • Writing 3/wrapping up: 16 June or 18 June

For registration you need to:

  • Upload a copy of your academic CV;
  • Indicate on which day you would like to attend the training sessions (Tuesdays or Thursdays – see programme) and already book those days in your calendar;
  • Upload an email indicating full support from your supervisor (e.g. Department Chair, PI). Participation requires commitment and effort of you and your supervisor (e.g. provide feedback on draft).

Due to experiences in the past and the expenses we have for organising the training, a deposit of €1000 is requested. This will have to be paid by the department/supervisor. When you have shown sufficient participation (missed no more than 1 meeting and have shown active participation, as evidenced by e.g. timely submission of homework), the deposit will be refunded after the training.
