The course is part of the DIES (Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies) programme of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK). The aim of ProGRANT Proposal Writing for Research Grants is to train researchers and young PhD holders in developing a promising research proposal for national or international research funding (every participant will have the opportunity to tailor their application to the funding institution of their choice). Researchers from all disciplines can apply for this course. Each group will consist of 30 participants from the host country and neighboring region (a more detailed list of countries will be published in the upcoming weeks). Because of its multicultural nature, ProGRANT is also an effective tool for promoting international research and relationships.
