The Grant-Writing Workshop “Strengthening Ability to Compete for Science and Technology Center in Ukraine Grants"101/349
02 Mar 2006
On March 2 the STCU held the Grant-Writing Workshop “Strengthening Ability to Compete for Science and Technology Center in Ukraine Grants” in Chisinau, Moldova. The event brought together an audience of about 40 scientists from the Institutes under the authority of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova and International Academy of Agricultural Development.
The Workshop was focused on strengthening researchers’ skills in seeking research support funding for their basic and applied work, following the requirements and selection criteria of STCU.
The STCU workshop’s primary objective was to engage researchers who were new to the program or desired to get a better understanding of our grant-application process. The presentations at the Workshop took scientists step-by-step through all of the stages of the proposal process and touched upon a large number of topics, including: how to apply for a grant; what information to include; financing a project. Special attention was paid to the role of foreign collaborators (to act as scientific mentors) and issues associated with finding other possible sources of support (including potential co-funding schemes).
The Workshop was supported by the Academy of Sciences of Moldova and its help was greatly appreciated by STCU.
