DWIH Grant training workshops in São Paulo and Belo Horizonte on "Turning a promising idea into a research project and an international career opportunity"

Freie Universität Berlin
, the Max Planck Regional Grants Office Southwest Germany, and the German House for Research and Innovation (DWIH São Paulo) will be holding intensive training courses for scientists interested in research opportunities in / with Germany. 
Places and dates: São Paulo (2 - 4 Apr 2017) and Belo Horizonte (5 - 7 Apr 2017).
Objective: to convey a comprehensive understanding of the methods and technical know-how required for preparing successful international research proposals. The courses will be run in a 'taught' and a 'group work' (sim game) format.
Part I will address the principles and policies of the various programme families ('funding landscape') and give an overview about major national & international fellowships and grants. It will also discuss potential career effects of the programmes.
Part II will provide valuable insights into essentials of scientific grant writing. This part will be presented by University Professor and Vice President of Freie Universität Berlin, Brigitta Schütt.
Part III will offer a proposal simulation game allowing for a hands-on preparation of a proposal outline (based on a realistic scenario), including evaluation, feedback, and tips on how to apply these insights to other fellowships/grants.

Who can participate?
The workshops will be open to the young researcher community in Brazil (PhD students, Post Docs, Young Faculty) and are free of charge.
Registration is required (closed online, but still possible on site for any day, so feel free to join!)
