The Foundation for Polish Science (FNP), together with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in Poland, co-organized training for doctoral students devoted to writing effective international grant applications.

Karolina Ćwiek-Rogalska shared her experience in preparing the ERC application, while Wojciech Święszkowski talked about his role as a reviewer in the ERC. The discussion with both invited guests was a part of the workshop on writing effective grant applications, conducted by an expert from Germany, Dr. Sabine Preusse. Since the issues regarding writing grant applications are a common challenge for young scientists at an early stage of professional development, sharing knowledge and expertise in funding opportunities at the European level provides a valuable opportunity for PhD candidates. 

The workshop was held on September 29, 2023 in Warsaw.
