Tentative program

The main objective of this 2nd HERALD.ECI Workshop with hands-on training is to create an ignition point for competitive proposals resulting in joint, EU-funded research projects under ECI (early career investigator) participation or leadership.
We want the trainees to
  • gain advanced ‘theoretical’ knowledge input on how to write competitive proposals & manage EU-funded projects from an EU funding expert & Horizon 2020 coach through an impulse talk plus interactive proposal clinics.
  • find excellent, perfectly matching collaboration/ project partners during a welcome mixer.
  • exchange experiences with an excellent (female) ALD expert and with an industry partner.
  • transfer the newly gained knowledge into advanced ‘practical’ skills by
    developing joint proposal ideas,
    transitioning specific ideas into concrete proposal drafts, and
    starting to write
    together in smaller, matched collaboration/ project groups.
  • go home with a raw outline and concrete idea description, i. e. the first step of an actual proposal.
