Inhoud vakThe course prepares students of the research master to plan beyond their
graduation, by given the opportunity to expand their second internship
proposal (or previous thesis/review)towards a competitive grant
Lectures aim to strengthen knowledge about various components of an
academic, transdisciplinary, 4-year (PhD-)research proposal. Elementary
aspects of the research topic are addressed, such as problem definition,
research approach, theoretical framework, research goal, research
questions, methods, milestones, scientific and societal relevance and
target group. Also, data collection, processing and analysis, validity
criteria and last but not least ethical considerations are covered.
The student becomes acquainted with the context of research financing,
and the financing requirements of similar research. Due to the
in words of the formats of funding agencies,one of the main challenges
is to write your proposal within
these constraints. This implies that you have to identify the essential
aspects of the proposal which are both scientific informative and will
convince critical review boards to select you proposal for funding, i.e.
to find formulations that address methodological excellence, urgency
and originality. During the course you will receive individual feedback
by the research staff and your peers on the drafts versions. Although
the final grant research proposal justifies a 4 year PhD project, at the
same time it will put your research in perspective for the Master’s
