“Proposal Writing for International Research Projects”,

Second Part: in March 2012

The course is part of the DIES (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies) programme of DAAD and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK). The aim of the training course is to enable younger PhD holders (up to 40 years of age) to design, write, plan and budget a promising research proposal according to international standards.

This also implies the submission of a 1-2 pages concept note of a research proposal and a 1-page CV at the time of application for the course and the development of a full research proposal between the training parts 1 and 2.

The first part will provide the methods and tools required for proposal development and writing, including group work and exercises.

After the first part, participants or teams of participants will be required to develop a concrete research proposal including a funding concept and work plan at their home institutions.

The proposals will be presented, discussed, assessed and fine-tuned in a participative review process during the second part of the course to be held in March 2012. Participants will only be invited for the second part if their proposal complies with quality standards and after having been successfully assessed by the expert team. The projects may be submitted to potential donor organizations by participants and/or their universities.

This course is part of the joint DAAD-HRK programme series.

The costs for participation will be covered by funds provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development through DAAD.
