Create a personal research funding strategy
Identify suitable funding opportunities
Assess your likelihood of success
Build strong professional relationships that result in future collaborations
Critically analyse why you were unsuccessful or outcompeted

The workshops will combine theory and exercises, with practical templates and tools provided to participants.
