Short course by EPEC: An Introduction to Proposal Writing

By Dan Bower, senior research associate at the University of Bern.

Proposal writing is a fundamental component of modern-day science, in which a researcher proposes a line of research to a funding agency (or within a company) with the goal of securing the necessary resources to pursue the research. A successful proposal enables an individual researcher to direct and manage their own research and can provide additional benefits such as freedom to choose the institution where they conduct the research. Proposal writing occurs at all levels of academia and industry, from writing a travel grant application to applying for jobs or asking funding agencies to support your projects. Whilst the format and emphasis of a proposal can vary depending on the field and objectives, there are nevertheless basic rules that can be followed to enhance the prospects of success. In this short workshop Dan Bower (CSH, University of Bern) will present an overview of how to approach your first proposal.
