Om arrangementet

The course is fundamentally about how you transform a research & innovation idea into an attractive proposal. It explains with what you have to write and provides advice on how to structure and present your ideas. A hands-on exercise on evaluating a proposal helps to emphasise some key lessons.


Kurset handler essensielt om hvordan du forvandler en forsknings- og innovasjonside' til et attraktivt forslag. Hva du må skrive og råd om hvordan du kan strukturere og presentere ideene dine. En praktisk øvelse med å evaluere et forslag bidrar til å understreke noen viktige leksjoner.
