Target group

This workshop is dedicated to researchers with no or little experience in grant proposal writing. Maximum number of participants: 12.

Workshop content

Successful grant proposal writing is a fundamental basis to fund a career in research. There are plenty of national and international funding programs with different funding schemes. Each scheme has its individual context and thematic focus, eligibility and funding rules, submission and evaluation process, and evaluation criteria. Thus, the detailed features and aspects of a successful proposal in one funding scheme are naturally differing from those of a successful proposal in another funding scheme. However, the process of how to work out these details is a common denominator to the different funding schemes. Is requires skills way beyond the ability to work out a research idea in details.

Therefore, the workshop focuses on a) how to develop your idea for a project into a sound work program, b) how to match it to the requirements of the funding program and c) how to facilitate the communication with the reviewer by presenting your complex ideas in an easy-to-understand way.

Technical and other requirements for a successful participation

Workshops in a virtual room have their own technical challenges. Please make sure that you have prepared

  • An idea for a research project for which you have not written a grant proposal yet. If you do not have one you can work on your current research project.
  • A computer or laptop with keyboard, mouse and one or two monitors (mobile phone is too small).
  • A headset.


Dr. Sabine Preusse

After obtaining her PhD in Astrophysics, Dr. Sabine Preusse decided to quit academia in 2006 and move on to the project management of European Funded Research projects in Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum. Besides writing grant proposals and being a project manager in the field of production technologies, she further trained herself as a business economist (IWW) and a professional business trainer. With this she founded her own company RaumZeit e.K. Coaching Training Beratung in 2011 and is now (also as a professional business coach) supporting researchers of all levels and disciplines in grant proposal writing and the implementation of research projects.
