Seminar in English

KAKENHI-Seminar in English

Reviewers of KAKENHI grant proposals may not be familiar with the narrow topic or field covered in the proposal. A successful proposal must be very clear (especially for non-specialist reviewers) about how the proposed research topic fits into a broader context, what the limits of knowledge concerning this topic are, how the proposed research will advance knowledge beyond these limits, and why the proposed research is of theoretical, practical, or even commercial importance. Furthermore, a successful proposal must convince reviewers that the research has a good chance of success and that the amount of public funding requested is necessary for the research. Very worthwhile proposals may fail if they do not adequately address these issues.

In “KAKENHI-Seminar in English”, the speakers, having experience of execution of KAKENHI grants of various categories, will provide practical tips for writing good proposals. In addition, some simple ways to strengthen proposals in terms of reviewers’ perception that the research is interesting, valuable, and will likely be successful will be discussed.

The seminar in 2020 is scheduling in September 2020.
