Registration is open for the 2023 Proposal Writing School, funded by the ORP project. The school, which will be held virtually, will take place on four Mondays during the time period from 20 February to 20 March 2023. The deadline for applications is on 20 January 2023.
The 2023 Proposal Writing School is a synergy school that will deliver an introductory-level overview of the proposal writing process with a focus on ORP-supported facilities and infrastructures. This will include an introduction to how proposals are reviewed by Time Allocation Committees (TACs), unconscious bias in proposal review and the (double-)blind proposal review system. The students will take part in group work that involves forming mini-TACs to review a set of professionally written proposals to gain experience on the process. There will also be sessions on building a science and technical case for their own proposals, with expert advice from tutors on what to do and avoid when writing an observing proposal. The students will take the information obtained from attending the school to write their own observing proposal, which will receive feedback from the expert tutors on how it could be improved.
The school will be delivered via Zoom by experts from across the different aspects of proposal writing and evaluation. The school will take place on four Mondays during the time period from 20 February 2023 to 20 March 2023. The deadline for applications is on 20 January 2023.
