VR/FORMAS seminar

seminars, workshops |

Will you apply for research funding from The Swedish Research Council (VR) or FOMRAS? In this seminar you will get information and guidance which will help you in the application process.

This seminar is meant to help those that plan to apply to the coming VR and Formas rounds for normal and young researcher projects, but much of what will be said applies to any type of project. First time appliers will benefit the most.

There will be two parts. The first part is about tips and tricks of how to write your application which will be given by Geert Cornelis. He will also talk about a mentoring program that was set up last year to facilitate proofreading of your application by a more experienced researcher.

The second part, given by Financial Officer David Törling, will help you draft your budget, including the procedure of how to get your budget approved within the department.

The seminar will also cover information about how to apply for co-financing PhD students by the department as well as the faculty.

Note! This is the yearly VR and Formas seminar held at the Department of Soil and Environment. The language will be English.
