This session began with an introduction to the European Union’s PRIMA funding programme and quickly moved into the specifics of preparing a project idea and leading into a full proposal for one of the PRIMA calls. The session becamea coaching session and guided the participants to the eventual submission of their proposal. The workshop provided researchers the key methodologies that enable them to write a proposal in response to a call for funding with a high chance of successful funding. The workshop was be instructive and gave participants the opportunity to raise their own points of view or to address specific questions concerning them either with the group or privately. There was a series of short lectures with breaks for questions, comments and input from participants and some practical examples to work on.
This course is ideal for research group leaders interested in applying for PRIMA funding and researchers interested in forming part of European consortia
