Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In today's research landscape, to frame one's research interest as a project and to write grant proposals has become a key ability. Being able to develop a more general research interest into a doable actual project is also a very helpful skill when writing master and PhD theses. In this course, students will learn to identify funding opportunities of the European and Austrian research landscape, how to develop and write a grant proposal, and how proposals are evaluated. Furthermore, we will address crucial issues of project management, and critically reflect how the framing and management of ever more scientific activities as a project impinge on how knowledge is produced in contemporary research.
In this course we will work with peer groups and tutorials to develop individual project proposals. To that end students are expected to read the required literature, participate in class discussions, develop their own grant proposal and comment and evaluate other students’ proposals.

Course Assessment
To pass the seminar, students are expected to complete the following tasks:
· Read and discuss the required readings
· Develop a grant proposal of their own
· Comment and evaluate other students’ proposals in their respective ‘peer group’

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Grading Scheme
The grading of the course is based on the seperate assessment of different tasks on a scale of 1-5.
Preparation of texts and in-class participation: 10 percent, assessed individually
Drafts and final version of own proposal: 60 percent, assessed individually
Comments and feedback in the peer-group: 30 percent, assessed individually

Minimum requirements
To successfully complete the course, a weighted average of at least 4,5 is required. Failure to meet the attendance regulations, to deliver course assignments on time or to adhere to standards of academic work may result in a deduction of points.

Attendance
Presence and participation is compulsory. Absences of four hours at maximum are tolerated, provided that the lecturer is informed about the absence. Absences of up to eight hours in total may be compensated by either a deduction of grading points or/and extra work agreed with the lecturer. Whether compensation is possible is decided by the lecturer.
Absences of more than eight hours in total cannot be compensated. In this case, or if the lecturer does not allow a student to compensate absences of more than four hours, the course cannot be completed and is graded as a 'fail' (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfil the attendance requirements on the student’s side (e.g. a longer illness). In such a case, the student may be de-registered from the course without grading. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate this in a timely manner, and to provide relevant evidence to their claims if necessary. Whether this exception applies is decided by the vice-director of studies responsible for the master programme.

Important Grading Information
If not explicitly noted otherwise, all requirements mentioned in the grading scheme and the attendance regulations must be met. If a required task is not fulfilled, e.g. a required assignment is not handed in or if the student does not meet the attendance requirements, this will be considered as a discontinuation of the course. In that case, the course will be graded as 'fail' (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfill the task on the student's side (e.g. a longer illness). In such a case, the student may be de-registered from the course without grading. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate this in a timely manner, and to provide relevant evidence to their claims if necessary. Whether this exception applies is decided by the vice-director of studies responsible for the master programme.
If any requirement of the course has been fulfilled by fraudulent means, be it for example by cheating at an exam, plagiarizing parts of a written assignment or by faking signatures on an attendance sheet, the student's participation in the course will be discontinued, the entire course will be graded as 'not assessed' and will be entered into the electronic exam record as 'fraudulently obtained'. Self-plagiarism, particularly re-using own work handed in for other courses, will be treated likewise.
