Workshop on communication in grant applications

internal events | internal staff education | seminars, workshops |

Welcome to this workshop on communication in grant applications. The workshop is ment for researchers at the Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science (LTV), but everyone at SLU is welcome to participate. Grant applications require a plan for the societal relevance and communication in your project. 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. As a starting point we have a few common denominators we have seen in successfull Formas applications from LTV Faculty.

On this occasion, we are focusing on Forma’s annual open call, which closes for applications on 21 April.  

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.
