On 27th December 2018 the Cairo Liaison Office organized a "Proposal Writing Workshop for Social Sciences". Graduates of social science disciplines that are aiming to pursue their postgraduate studies or their research career in Germany were invited to register for this workshop.
The one-day workshop was co-instructed by Dr. Riham Bahi, Associate Prof. of Political Sciences at the Faculty of Economics and Political Sciences, Cairo University and Dr. Mustafa Abdalla, Research Associate at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, Freie Universität Berlin. The workshop gave the participants an overview on the essentials of proposal writing including tips and tricks on what to do to increase their chances of writing a successful proposal. Due to its interactive nature, it furthermore gave them the opportunity to discuss their own research proposals in working groups, which the participants felt as a big benefit. The skills learned during this workshop included not only proposal writing but also research designing. Participants also learnt how to apply what they learned to writing research papers, dissertations, projects and/or grants. The overview on the German funding landscape with a hands-on example of an actual call for proposals of a German funding institution was another highlight of the workshop.
Due to the reported success of this workshop and due to public demand the Cairo Liaison office is currently planning the next workshop. Stay tuned to our Facebook page to find out where it will be held next time!
