Workshop “How to write a successful FP7 proposal” in Hamburg

TRAYSS PRIME is satellite to GBM Fall Meeting

(PresseBox) (Winnenden, ) TRAYSS PRIME offers from 15th - 16th September 2007 a 1.5 day workshop on proposal writing within the 7th European Framework Programme as a satellite to the GBM fall meeting on “Molecular Life Sciences” in Hamburg.

This workshop is targeted at PhD-students, postdocs, junior group leaders and other scientists in the life science sector who to date have little or no experience with EU research funding. It will provide insights into all aspects of importance for the optimal use of the funding opportunities provided by the 7th Framework Programme, starting with the identification of suitable calls and programmes, the search for project partners and the building of research consortia and is finally going into details of the proposal and evaluation procedure.

The workshop includes extensive hands-on-exercises, thus giving the participants the opportunity to directly apply and deepen the knowledge gained. After finishing the workshop, participants will be able to navigate the “jungle” of EU research funding and to prepare grant applications within FP7 more effectively and successfully. Since the TRAYSS PRIME project is supported by the EU, the participants have the opportunity to learn from EU funding experts at extremely low costs. The fee for the workshop will be as follows: Standard: 120 EUR; Participant of the GBM fall meeting or ScanBalt Members: 90 EUR; Students 45 EUR.

The number of participants is limited to 20. In case of over-booking, the organizers will select the participants under the aspect of a regional and thematic balance. Workshop language is English.

More information, such as the workshop agenda and the online registration form is accessible under

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 main idea is to sensitize and educate young European researchers from the Baltic Sea Region on concepts regarding research management.
