DROP-IN WRITING CAFE SUPPORTS RESEARCHERS IN THEIR WRITING PROCESS - 4 NOVEMBER

Is the deadline for a funding application coming up and are you finding it hard to translate your great ideas into a reasoned and convincing application?

Then look no further than the Research Support Office’s writing cafe, a writing haven where you can bring your good ideas and your computer. Here you will find two advisers from the Research Support Office waiting to answer your questions about e.g. interpreting a foundation’s assessment criteria, or about specific formulations, drawing up a budget or searching a research funding database.

The informal form – where you just turn up without a reservation – is inspired by the popular homework cafes in the Danish schools.

The writing cafe is intended for researchers who already have a project and know which foundation they are applying to. This means that the writing cafe is not the place to find help with a financing strategy or an individual bibliometric analysis.

These services are tailored to the individual researcher and are provided by the Research Support Office. 

There will be free refreshments with tea, coffee, water and snacks.

The autumn Time to Write cafes:

4 November 13:00-17:00 in the Viktor Albeck Building, room 1265-238

2 December 13:00-17:00 at Palle Juul Jensens Boulevard, room G304-127, Entrance G, G303

Contact Adviser Anne Birgitte Lindgren The Research Support Office Mobile: (+45) 3058 7939.  Email: abli@au.dk

Good Grantmanship and the Danish Funding Landscape, 20 May 2021

Target group

International PhDs and postdocs with little or no experience in grant writing.  

Purpose

The purpose of the workshop is to give the participants an intensive introduction to the component parts of the grant proposal, how they fit together, and how writers can ensure that each part supports the overall argument and which techniques to use when writing your proposal. The purpose of the workshop is also to introduce the Danish funding landscape and AU internal procedures regarding proposal submission.

Workshop content

The workshop will be delivered as a combination of presentations, group work and discussions.  The presentations will cover:

  • What do reviewers want to see?
  • What are the component parts of the proposal?
  • How to compose each part of the proposal?
  • Who are the most important Danish funders, and what do they support?
  • Which procedures do you need to observe in the proposal phase?

In the group work, participants will discuss the drafts of the objectives and perspectives section of their individual projects and do a mock review of a sample proposal.

Participant requirements

Before the workshop, participants are expected to have read the ‘advice and tools for your grant proposal’ on the RSO website - http://medarbejdere.au.dk/en/administration/researchandtalent/research-support/advice-and-tools-for-your-grant-proposal/ .

The group work will require that the participants are prepared:

  • To forward a draft for the objectives and perspective section of their proposal to the course presenters (read ‘the advice and tools’ before you start writing)
  • To share their draft with the other participants
  • To enter into constructive discussion of the drafts of the other participants in the group

Workshop presenters

Two fundraisers from the Research Support Office will hold the workshop.
