The goal of this presentation is to provide some background information on how to write successfully in order to obtain a funding grant for your research. Grantsmanship is a skill that everyone learns throughout their research careers and we have to say upfront that there are no sure-fire recipes for success in this business. However, some of the tips that we provide in this presentation should help you to avoid some common pitfalls and also organize your writing process a little better.
