This interactive workshop involves the broad topic academic writing skills, including grant writing and writing for a top journal. Publishing a high-impact paper or being awarded a big research grant are career makers for a scientist. However, writing high-impact science requires polish and politics. The workshop is aimed at early stage dementia care researchers (PhD students and post-docs) who plan to submit grant proposals or hope to publish their research in a high-impact journal.

Prof. Frans Verhey, Prof. Marjolein de Vugt, Prof. Lieve van den Block and Dr. Sebastian Köhler, established senior researchers in the field, will walk you through a step-by-step guide on how to write a specific grant application, tell you more about their experiences and provide you with the most important do’s and don’ts. Note that this is an interactive workshop with room for personal input and questions. A substantial amount of time will be allocated to practice.

This seminar is organised for PhD students and post-docs attached to the INTERDEM Academy; interested researchers who are not part of this network are also welcomed.

The INTERDEM Academy has been established in 2014, and it has been committed to stimulating the career development and capacity building of researchers in the area of psychosocial interventions and timely diagnosis in people with dementia, as well as supporting the pathway to senior academic posts in the INTERDEM network. The network has grown to around 200 early stage researchers.
