Dear Ph.D. students!
Registration for the course Research Design and Applications (FVS702F) is now open:
The lessons will take place on the following days between 13:20 and 14:50 in Lögberg 204:
The aim of the course is to enhance students‘ skills in designing their research and writing applications to research funds. Focus is on the Icelandic Research Fund for Graduate Students (Rannís) and the University of Iceland Research Fund. The course deals with application writing in general as well as the organizing and structuring of research design. The course is organized as a workshop, which means that students will work on their own or in pairs/small groups on their own projects as well as giving feedback to the work of others. This includes making a research design or grant applications. Grades are not given but all students are required to turn in a self-assessment and attend at least five out of six lessons. A prerequisite for participation in the course is that students either have a draft of a research design or an already approved research proposal from their PhD studies.
The main objective of the course is to make students better equipped to write competitive grant applications to both domestic and foreign funding agencies.
At the end of the course it is expected that students:
- Have gained understanding of critical issues in application writing
- Have enhanced their skills in critically reading and commenting research designs/proposals and applications
- Know the main domestic grants available
- Have basic skills in making a research budget
The course is taught by Hulda Proppé, research manager at the School of Social Sciences, and will be in English. Please note that the participation is limited to 25 students.
