The WWW-YES-2009-Brazil cooperative research project

by Daniel Thevenot - published on

Collaborative research project building-up

27-30 October 2009 - half-day sessions

At the start of the workshop, participants built multidisciplinary groups of 4-5 persons. Each group prepared a proposal for international scientific research, under the guidance of senior experts. The topics of these proposals were defined with the help of actors of decentralized cooperation in the field of water supply and sanitation, or with academic searchers.

For better understanding of such role game, this collective proposal preparation was introduced by a short course about scientific proposal writing and accompanied by senior scientists who have all experienced European research projects.

Each research proposal resulted both into a one-page ‘Expression of Interest (EoI)’ distributed to participants and into an oral presentation and discussion with a panel of senior scientists and practitioners on the afternoon of Friday 30 October 2009. The aims of this scientific exercise are to learn how to justify all aspects of an international research project and to help participants to possibly obtain a support for future environmental research projects.
