Workshop: Budget Planning in Applications for EU Research Funding (Feb 13, 2020, registration by Feb 3, 2020)

Whereas most researchers enthusiastically focus on the content and international dimensions of their project proposals, drawing up a viable budget plan often takes the back seat, or neglected altogether. Calculating the budget in the days and hours just before a deadline can lead to a rejected project proposal or to an approved project lacking the means necessary to ensure its smooth administration or even its successful conclusion.

Why not start preparing your budget early on and reduce the pressure?
This workshop is intended for all those considering applying for EU-funding within the next year.

The finance team of the EU-Office at the University of Göttingen, Steffanie Frost und Florian Oehme, will present the general features on financial planning for EU research applications as well as offer specific details on how to calculate your project budget. Through of a set of exercises, participants can gain practical experience in calculating a budget that will be useful for drawing up their own financial plan.


Researchers and scholars from all academic disciplines are invited to attend. This workshop will be in English and is limited to 12 participants. You are welcome to send us questions in advance and we will address them in our presentation.
(Please note: We will offer a budget planning workshop in German on Wednesday, 24 June 2020.)
