The WWW-YES-2010 cooperative research project

by Daniel Thevenot - published on

WWW-YES-2010 project presentation

Collaborative projects (31 May - 4 June 2010 )

At the start of the workshop, participants were invited to build multidisciplinary groups of 3-4 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 academic searchers.

For better understanding of such role game, this collective proposal preparation was introduced by a short course on scientific proposal writing and accompanied by Daniel Thevenot who has experienced European research projects.

Each collaborative research proposal resulted both into :
- a one-page ‘expression of interest’ distributed to participants and
- an oral presentation and discussion with a panel of senior scientists and practitioners on the morning of Friday 4 June 2010.

The aims of this 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 during or after their PhD preparation.
