Workshop 1 - "Working together: how to find a fellowship and obtain a grant"A report from Gabor Toth
Discuss, how candidates can find the proper fellowships, and how they can obtain funding for that.
We all agreed already at the beginning that the key of a successful fellowship is the perfect match between the aims of the fellow and the aims of the hosting centre. The remaining question was how this perfect match can be reached, and what can a candidate do for that.
How to achieve this?
We all agreed that visiting the hosting centre before applying is crucially important. It gives the opportunity to get some information about the life of fellows, tasks of fellows or the satisfaction of fellows in that given centre. But such a visit can provide the opportunity for the team to interview the candidate before making their decision.
Once the application of a candidate is accepted there are a few steps that need to be taken before the arrival.
There is still a need to improve the ‘hide-and-seek’ between candidates and hosting centres in order to increase the rate of the perfect matches. And the proper funding is still the ‘missing link’ between candidates, hosting centres and a successful fellowship project.The EAPCI offers each year several grants. During EuroPCR 2013, 5 candidates have been awarded and will receive 25,000€.Read more about the EAPCI Fellowship programme.Discover CathGo.Read more about the EAPCI Summit 2013.
