DIES ProGRANT Proposal Writing for Research Grants
Practical-oriented Training for New Researchers in Jordan
March 8th–12th 2015 — E-Learning — September 6th–10th 2015
On behalf of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) the DIES ProGRANT Co-ordination Centre at the University of Cologne, together with the DAAD Information Centre Amman and an additional local partner are organizing the training course:
“ProGRANT Proposal Writing for Research Grants: Practical-oriented Trainings for New Researchers”
The course is part of the DIES (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies) programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK).
The aim of DIES ProGRANT is to train researchers and young PhD holders in developing a promising research proposal for national or international research funding (every participant will have the opportunity to tailor their application to the funding institution of their choice). Researchers from all disciplines can apply for this course. Each group will consist of 30 participants from the region.
Because of its multicultural nature, DIES ProGRANT is also an effective tool for promoting international research and relationships
Seminar I (March 8th–12th 2015, Amman, Jordan)
Seminar I will provide basic knowledge and basic technical skills that are needed to design, write and budget a potentially successful grant (e.g. to transform an abstract research idea into a proposal) on the basis of lectures, group work and exercises. Attendance and active participation from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm is required.
Seminar II (September 6th–10th 2015, Amman, Jordan)
During the second seminar, the grant drafts will be presented, discussed, evaluated and fine-tuned in a participative review process. The objective of this seminar is to engage in a collaborative feedback process between trainers and participants and ultimately develop a final draft. At the end of Seminar II, the research funding proposals should be ready for submission to research funding organizations. Attendance and active participation from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm is required.
