Winning research funding is a competitive business. With much funding now targeted at international cooperation, the ability to write effectively and convincingly in English is a requirement of any researcher. This workshop is designed to help those who do not have English as their native language, improve their ability to write research proposals especially for European funding programmes. Participants will learn how to identify good models and develop effective writing strategies to target an interdisciplinary readership and put their message across in English. Participants will be introduced to the ‘grammar-free’ portfolio approach to developing their writing skills, followed by a ‘hands-on’ practice session.
Target group: Those who wish to improve their ability to write research proposals in English. The level of English should be intermediate or above.
