| 0 comments

We are happy to announce the next workshop on “Fundraising for young scientists: How to open doors and avoid pitfalls in research funding“.

Date: Friday, 6 December 2013, 8:30-16:30

Place: GZMB building, Justus-von-Liebig-Weg 11

Duration: 1 day

Good projects need money in order to be put into practice. In light of limited public funding, the securing of sources of financial support – whether classic science funding organizations, foundations or companies – is an important task, especially in the academic and non-profit sectors.

Even though there is no guaranteed path to reach the target, successful fundraising is not a coincidence. A prerequisite is an attractive project concept. In addition, professional skills and abilities are necessary in order to locate suitable funding sources and approach them with the right strategy. If a convincingly formulated application is then submitted, the chances of securing funding are good.

Goals:

The workshop communicates proven fundraising knowledge from the strategic initial

considerations to the funding application and covers the following topics:

>> Basics of fundraising: Communication pathways and fundraising instruments

>> Who are the funders? An overview of the funding landscape

>> Approaching funders: Features of a successful strategy

>> Change of perspective: My project from the funders’ point of view

>> Financial planning: What is expected of me?

>> Applications in practice: Tips & stumbling blocks

>> Fundraising: My next steps
