Abstract:

In this seminar I would like to share my experience as an applicant and reviewer for DFG, BMBF and EU funding.

Why?

(i) Because I find it difficult to write successful proposals. (ii) Because I was elected to the DFG Review panel on the Foundations of Medicine and Biology, rewarding the trust I have gained. (iii) Because as a young scientist I would have liked to receive help for this important part of my work.

The seminar is therefore aimed at all those for whom writing applications for third-party funding is an opportunity to learn. My experiences are of course limited and not universally valid. For colleagues from the engineering and natural sciences, as well as medicine, however, one or the other valuable reference could be there. The format of the seminar is not a lecture, but a discussion with hopefully many questions of the participants. The most important experience in twenty years of reviewing is the observation that proposals for research projects is a form of science communication that has a number of similarities with other forms of communication (publications, posters, websites ...). I will present this structure of successful proposals and give concrete advice on how to submit them.
