Happy new year!
We’re happy to announce that our research group will be joined by Dr Christian Ydesen, Associate Professor at the Department for Learning and Philosophy at University of Aalborg, who is currently Visiting Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities.
He will be speaking on 27th January (1-2 pm, IASH) on a topic that might be of interest to many of you:
Presenting a research project application: Shaping a Global Education Space – A Comparative Analysis of the OECD’s Role in Education, 1958–2020
The importance of attracting external funding in research is on the rise as a global trend. This development holds true in terms of career management, securing proper time for research and in terms of university funding. The purpose of this talk is two-fold. Firstly, I will take the audience into the very engine room of writing a research application. In this respect I will pass on my experiences gathered from writing a research project application to the Danish research council which was submitted last autumn. Secondly, I will present the academic content of the application with the ambition of getting feedback for further development of refinement of the application in the event that it is unsuccessful in the first round making its chances of success higher in the second round in 2016.
Venue: Venue: The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, The University of Edinburgh, 2 Hope Park Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9NW, UK
