Draft ProgrammeTrainer: Lotte Jaspers, Yellow Research13.00 Registration 13.30 Short Introduction: The cascade effect of things14:00 B2 Scientific Proposal, a discussion in detail!Based on the logic tree for grant writing, we will discuss in detail the project template (state of the art and objectives, methodology and resources), the ERC Instructions for Applicants and the ERC selection criteria. Therefore we will discuss: 1) groundbreaking nature and ambition 2) the high gain and high risk balance and the link to feasibility of the scientific approach 3) the envisioned impact on future research and possibilities of utility 4) sound project plan and structure with intermediate goals and back-up plans.15.00 Coffee break 15.10 Continuation of the B2 discussion 16.30 Extended SynopsisThe extended synopsis is a 5 page summary of the Scientific Proposal with an emphasis on the groundbreaking nature and feasibility of the proposal and how the outcomes of the research will impact further research.17:10 Principal InvestigatorThe PI should fit the scientific story as laid down in the B1 and the B2. This is a fit based on Quality rather than Quantity and may mean that adaptations to the proposed template for the CV and Track-Record may have to be made and narrations may have to be included.18.00 End of workshop
