Event: Acquisition & Earning Power training (session 3)
Topic: Many researchers would like to spend all their time doing research and teaching in their specialist field. However, as you become a lecturer or tenure tracker the question arises how to finance your research. Not only are researchers expected to excel and distinguish themselves academically, you also have to apply entrepreneurial qualities, think strategically and navigate the complex funding landscape with its many rules and conditions. In this course, we want to help you with these challenges by focusing on your personal profile: your qualities and areas for improvement. In addition, the course provides specific information about various funding possibilities. This training course is for lecturers and senior lecturers with 5 to 10 years of experience after their PhD.
