Courses

The Grants Office (through UM: Maastricht University) provides several training opportunities. These include:

  • Training grants for individuals
  • ERC training
  • Vidi training

 

Training grants for individuals

This training is intended for researchers aiming to write a Rubicon, Veni or Marie Sklodowska-Curie proposal. The participants are trained by means of their own research proposal. During the course they will review other proposals, rewrite their draft, present and refine their presentation. Each training is composed of a number of meetings. Beside these meetings, you will also work on your final proposal/presentation and review other candidates’ proposals. This training is held twice a year: in spring and in fall. Only pre-selected candidates can participate. Please contact Marco Berndes for information on course and preselection dates.

Training for Vidi applicants

This training is intended for researchers aiming to write a Vidi proposal. The course offers a general session on the Vidi funding scheme, the evaluation process and tips, tricks and recommendations on proposal writing. For those who are interested in actual feedback and guidance with his/her proposal, an in-depth training session is held.
This training is held once a year. Only pre-selected candidates can participate. Please contact Marco Berndes for information on course and preselection dates.

Workshop  ERC Starting and Consolidator

In this workshop the ERC and panel specifics for the scientific proposal and Principal Investigator are discussed, with specific focus on how to write an ERC proposal. Researchers are provided with a good understanding of: the evaluation criteria and how to analyze them, what is an excellent PI according to the reviewers of the different domains and how to write a high-risk/high-gain research proposal considering panel specifics and type of project. Please contact Marco Berndes for more information on training dates.
