The WWW-YES-2013 cooperative research projects

by Daniel Thevenot - published on

2013 Cooperative research project building up (3-7 June 2013)

At the start of the workshop, participants were invited to build multidisciplinary groups of 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 7 June.

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.
