European scientists well-prepared for international research activities

TRAYSS PRIME provides young scientists with knowledge how to participate

(PresseBox) (Rostock, ) An international group of life science researchers attended the workshop “How to write a successful FP7 proposal?” on 15th and 16th September 2007. The workshop was a satellite event to the Autumn Meeting of GBM (Gesellschaft für Biochemie und Molekularbiologie / Association for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) at Hamburg University.

The Polish researcher Dr. Anna Ihnatowicz works at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne. She experiences international research cooperation in her daily working life: “FP7 offers great opportunities for lifescience researchers to boost scientific developments on a European level. But the bureaucratic complexity deters a number of researchers from applying for grants from Brussels. Such seminars as this one in Hamburg deliver great tools for a higher chance to achieve FP7 support.”

Future workshops will already be held on 3rd October 2007 in Copenhagen as a satellite event to the ScanBalt Forum and in Berlin during the Berlin Brain Days on 30th November 2007. TRAYSS PRIME is an EU-FP6 financed project offering training workshops to young life science researchers on the three topics “Research and Project Management”,

“EU grant acquisition under FP7” and “Management of Intellectual Property”. The project partners (Steinbeis Team Northeast, Rostock, ProSciencia Beratungs-GmbH, Lübeck and ScanBalt LifeScience Network, Copenhagen) are experts in European research funding and in research management. The project’s main objective is to sensitize and educate young European researchers from the Baltic Sea Region to enhance their research management skills. More information is available at
