The WWW-YES-2012 cooperative research projects

by Daniel Thevenot - published on , updated on

2012 Cooperative research project building up (21-25 May 2012)

At the start of the workshop, participants were invited to build multidisciplinary groups of 3-4 persons and to select one of the topic proposals presented by Martin Seidl within actual research topics at LEESU. Within a short period of time (ca. 3 half-days), 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 25 May.

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.
