Inhoud vak

This module coaches students in writing an interdisciplinary research
project (the research proposal). Skills and insights developed during
the previous module Writing Interdisciplinary Research Project are put
in practice during this module. A mid-term draft is peer-reviewed by
fellow students and at the end of the module, the research proposal is
presented to a mock grant commission for assessment. The final product,
the research proposal, should in principle be sound enough to be
submitted to a funding agency. The final project proposal consists of a
state-of-the art section, methods and framework section, section on the
organization and structure of the project, literature. The module
consists of group sessions, individual assignments and feedback moments,
peer-review and public presentation.
