How to build and present a competitive idea and CV for individual grants

webinar, h 9,30-11

The workshop, organized by the Research Support Department, aims to encourage researchers to become competitive candidates in individual funding programs such as the ERC and the Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship (MSCA IF).
It is primarily designed for young researchers (years from doctorate <12), but participation is open to all, doctoral students, research fellows and professors of the Politecnico di Torino.
The training will provide information on the characteristics of the CV of an expert researcher, will explain how to "build" such a CV and how to present and valorize it during the proposal-writing phase.
The principles and objectives underlying these funding programs will also be presented, the specific terminologies and conditions that make an idea ground-breaking and the results breakthrough.
