ttopstart academy – how our funding canvas can increase your success in Horizon 2020

Tuesday, 13 September, 12:30-13:15
Gustav Mahler II (Saal 3.2)

Research budgets and scientific outputs are under pressure due to limited funding, increased competition and a need for socio-economic impact. The changing funding climate for R&D demands that research groups continue to innovate and refine their current practices.

In this short workshop we will explain our funding canvas, a novel tool developed by ttopstart that can help prepare your research team for grant applications. The canvas is based on nine criteria that strongly influence the chances of receiving funding. It identifies strengths and weaknesses to develop a strategic plan for improving overall  performance in both national and international subsidy programmes.
