Seminar Funding Programs and Requirements for Junior Researchers, June 21, 2017

Scientific and academic development does not only take place just at universities, but rather within international scientific communities. In this regard, externally funded research activities are very important for a scientist or academic's biography. Many different (inter)national programs focus on funding research. This event provides an introduction and insight into the structures and funding programs, acquisition and procedures as well as basic information about project management.

Next Training Session Date:
Wednesday, June 21, 2016, 8:30 - 10:00 AM
Location: KG 710, "Kopfgebäude" Building, 7th Floor
Please, sing up till June 7, 2017

Register online at: Department of Human Resource Development

The seminar takes place once per semester. As soon as the next date has been set, it will be posted here.


Research Funding “Stammtisch” organised by FUN

We would like to invite anyone interested to take part!
In 2015 we have started a regularly scheduled get-together to talk frankly and directly about topics related to research funding.

The get-togethers take place at the Science Café every 4th Thursday of the month beginning at 2:00 PM.

We will have the most recent, up-to-date information and be available to answer any concrete questions you may have. This is also an opportunity for you to get in touch with other colleagues and exchange information.
Please let us know beforehand if there is anything in particular you would like to talk about, discuss or learn more about so we can prepare information in advance.
