Seminar - 'Where should I seek funding for my research career?', by CIMNE Project Department
Tuesday, November 15th, 2016. Time: 12 p.m.
Place: O.C. Zienkiewicz Conference Room, C1 Building, UPC Campus Nord, Barcelona.
It is well-known that the best way to develop your own scientific career is by taking care of your publications and CV. Equally important is to take care of the financial side of your career. This is a non-trivial task that you should start as soon as possible, preferably in your early scientific career by participating in the preparation of the pre-doctoral grants, and could culminate by getting the most prestigious European grants such as the European Research Council Grants.
From the wide range of research calls, in this seminar we are going to focus in those purely devoted to the research career, that is, centered on individuals and not projects, typically the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral grants. The main purpose of this kind of grants is to contribute to the development of your own research through certain economic stability during some years. We recommend this seminar for researchers who are unaware of the opportunities offered but also could be of interesting for leader scientific groups looking for new opportunities for his/her fellows.
The format of this seminar will be the presentation of certain general information, map of calls and we will propose a discussion group to clarify the different range of opportunities and to encourage researchers to come forward to the next individual calls.
CIMNE PROJECT DEPARTMENT
The core business of CIMNE, as a research center, is to conduct research work mainly through specific research projects. How to seek funding for such research projects is a key issue in our organisation. How to successfully manage the projects, at a scientific and technical level, but also at an administrative and legal level, is crucial to survive. That is the reason why CIMNE created the Project Management Department in 2005, what has been also a essential key factor to allow CIMNE for taking the administrative and scientific coordination and leadership of many of their R+D projects. During this time CIMNE has participated in more than 660 competitive projects. Moreover, the scientists from CIMNE have been awarded with prestigious individual grants such as Ramón y Cajal, Juan de la Cierva and Marie Curie.
The aim of the Project Management Department is to stimulate, facilitate and support the sistematic participation of teams in competitive research and technological innovation projects in order to maximise the chances for getting (public and private) funds to implement them.
