5 November: Lecture: Scientific excellence?!

Academia is a competitive business. Researchers compete with one another for scholarships and grants, for publication in academic journals and for the limited number of tenured positions at universities and research institutes. You see the term ‘scientific excellence’ on a daily basis, but what exactly does it mean? Why are some research groups more successful than others at winning competitive research grants focused on scientific excellence?

During this lecture, the speaker will give a brief history of ‘excellence funding’ in research policy and explain group strategies for obtaining competitive research grants.
