FWF-Coaching workshops offer a practical insight into the working methods and procedures of the FWF and clarify crucial points of the application process and project management. The workshops are aimed in particular at scientists and researchers who are planning to submit an application to the FWF in the near future and have the necessary qualifications.
Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of the FWF, such as can be acquired by attending an FWF information event. There are no restrictions with regard to the professional background of the participants.
Structure and programme
Coaching workshops are practice-oriented: inputs from FWF experts alternate with practical exercises. The main focus of these workshops is the close examination of real proposals taken from the FWF's daily work. Participants slip into the role of reviewers and analyse and discuss applications and reviews. By comparing the initial application with the approved resubmission, participants learn the "dos and don’ts" as well as the opportunities and pitfalls of the application process.
The participation fee is 120 euros per person and includes course materials and catering. Many universities and research institutions refund all or part of the fee. The fee is payable upon registration.
Please note that your registration is binding. Participation can be cancelled free of charge up to 14 days before the event at the latest. In the case of a no-show, the entire fee will be charged. Alternatively, you can send an email with the name of a substitute participant at the latest two days before the date of the workshop.
