The academia track has recently been set-up and currently features the course Grant Application. This course will teach you one, if not the most, vital aspect of succeeding in science: how to write a successful grant application.
Since your career in academia is at nearly every stage, largely determined by how successful you are in obtaining funding, this is a vital skill to learn. Unfortunately the amount of formal and informal training opportunities for this are often limited. Researchers are often trained in scientific writing, however this differs fundamentally from grant proposal writing.
For example when writing a grant proposal you have to elaborately address the relevance of your research and how it will benefit your field whereas this is only a minor part in a scientific paper. Furthermore you will have to determine a “hot” and fundable research topic and make estimates regarding costs and time that a project will cost.
