DFG Proposal Writing Workshop: Individual Research Grants

On 16 May 2022 the Unit for Research Funding at LMU organizes the DFG Proposal Writing Workshop: Individual Research Grants coaching researchers in an early career stage and international researchers with no or little experience with the German research funding system in how to prepare high quality applications to the German Research Foundation (DFG).

The proposal writing workshop will focus on the DFG Individual Research Grants – with or without Temporary Positions for Principal Investigators (“Eigene Stelle”). The workshop is limited to researchers currently preparing a DFG application for this program whose project is going to be located at LMU Munich. Hands-on exercises will be combined with tips on crafting a convincing funding proposal as well as program specific information about the DFG application process.

The number of participants is limited. We reserve the right to close registration early if we receive sufficient applications for participation.
