During this intensive two-day course you will be taught by seasoned scientists with multi-million euro grants, grant application experts who have reviewed hundreds of grants, assessors from funding bodies such as NWO and many more.

2. Grant application consultants who have reviewed and supported hundreds of grants over their career.
3. Experience stories from early-stage researchers who just obtained successful funding themselves such as Veni, Rubicon, Marie-Curie fellowships or other early stage grants.
4. Professionals from funding bodies such as NWO, Hartstichting or the EU to tell you about their perspective and views on successful grants.
