About Workshop


This online workshop will address research proposal writing for all the disciplines. We will discuss all the key aspects and will answer your queries. Presentations will be conducted on how to write a successful research proposal along with budgeting and analysis of sponsored project proposals. The workshop will be very helpful as it gave the audience a proposal reviewer’s perspective. A good proposal is a brief one which is well written with clear scientific and technical content. The scientific content must include the title of proposal; clear and testable hypothesis; aims and objectives; experiments to be done; drawbacks; preliminary data and relevant citations. Budget should be reasonable and it should include the cost for equipment, provisions for staff, consumables, travel/conference together with other contingencies.   

A research proposal is a document that provides a detailed description of the research project. The objective of this online workshop is to provide good knowledge of writing a research project, various types of funding agencies and grants. The research proposal describes what you plan to do, why should it be done, how will you do it and what results do you expect? This workshop is a milestone that will act as a catalyst for certain innovative minds by motivating them to plan writing proposals strategically. 

This course is ideal for Academicians, Professors, Teachers, Post Graduate and Doctoral (PhD) Students,  Researchers and Professionals Working in Government Sector, , Clinical and Health Researchers, Project Managers, Research Staff and Coordinators and Data Managers. Post Graduates, Doctoral Scholars and Medical Doctors who are currently working on their dissertation or recently completed their research work and interested to publish their research findings will greatly benefit from this course.
