Abstract: This seminar focuses on the preparation of high quality proposals for research funding. As an integral part of academics work and responsibility, academics must be equipped with skills for preparing proposals properly for applying for research funding. While funding bodies may have different requirements, there are generic skills necessary for writing a proposal of high quality as well as common pitfalls to avoid. This seminar will cover these aspects, and serve as a platform for participants to share experiences in writing quality proposals.
