Introductory course on how to write competitive research grant applications

Receiving a research grant is an important career-boost. A grant can provide funding to extend your network, obtain new skills, exchange knowledge during research stays abroad, conduct break-through research and more. A successful grant is a sign of creative and innovative thinking and indicates that your research is of high quality, as well as that you are willing to lead novel research endeavors.
