Applying for external funding may be easier if you have a funding strategy. If you just apply ad hoc, there is a certain probability that:
• you will start late
• you will apply slightly randomly and in several different directions within your field of research.
The problem with this approach is that you rarely manage to establish a clear profile, a strong CV and sufficient publications within your field to, for example, be able to apply for more profiled funding," says research advisor Mette Meilstrup from the Research Support Office (ARTS/BSS team).
