Workshop on communication in grant applications

internal events | internal staff education | seminars, workshops |

Welcome to this workshop on communication in grant applications for researchers at the Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science (LTV). Grant applications require a plan for the communication and dissemination of your results. If your plan is realistic and well thought out, it can contribute to the success of your application.

In this workshop, we will be looking at important factors for the success of your application and things you should keep in mind when planning the communication and dissemination of your research results.  We will also offer support for and opinions regarding actual applications to be submitted over the coming month. On this occasion, we are focusing on Forma’s annual open call, which closes for applications on 8 April.  

Have you already written the section of your application dealing with communication? If so, you will be happy to read it and comment on that section. Send your application to camilla.zakrisson.juhlin@slu.se before 20 March and you will receive feedback at the workshop.  

Unable to attend on 25 March?  Contact us at camilla.zakrisson.juhlin@slu.se and, time allowing, we will be happy to assist you.  

The meeting will be held in English.

Why should we communicate our research? 

  • Your research can make an important contribution to societal development and, if people and organisations both within and outside academia are to benefit, this new knowledge needs to be communicated. Communication is not simply a matter of outreach, it is also about receiving input that helps you to make greater progress and achieve better results than would otherwise have been possible.  
  • Well-communicated research results make it possible for organisations, politicians and citizens outside the scientific community to make  scientifically grounded decisions. 
  • An active dialogue about research can inspire new generations to further study and provide ongoing research with access to new perspectives and approaches.  
  • The public has the right to be informed about the results of research financed from public funds.
