This presentation is part of The grant proposal: from research design to writing strategies, IRH-ICUB workshop series.
This series of workshops aims to provide a venue for humanities and social sciences researchers to meet, share their experiences, receive hands-on advice on grant writing, and collaborate on their grant applications for national and European calls. The series is addressed primarily to researchers in the early stages of their career (typically up to five years after the PhD). It is hoped that out of this workshop series a small community of researchers will emerge who will continue to offer mutual support for grant applications through constructive criticism and peer-review.
