Dear colleagues, 

Hoping you all have started the new year with inspiring professional and 
personal perspectives! 

We would like to draw your attention to the PAGES workshop ‘Funding starts here 
- Grant writing for early-career researchers’, which will be held in Prague, 
Czech Republic, 26-29 May 2019. This workshop is organized by the Pages 
Early-Career Network <> and aims to 
introduce ECRs in the paleosciences to the funding agency landscape, provide 
strategies and advice on the grant writing and submission process, and 
encourage networking among ECRs interested in initiating or developing research 
grant proposals.

We are pleased to announce that our list of speakers includes Dr. Maria Uhle 
(National Science Foundation), Dr. Jonas Bunikis (European Research Council), 
and Dr. Jana Cejkova (EU H2020 program). They will talk about international 
grant agencies as well as discuss what it takes to write a successful grant in 
the field of paleoscience. Furthermore, Dr. Alessio Rovere, an ERC starting 
grant fellow at MARUM (University of Bremen, Germany) will share his successful 
grant proposal application experience.

The workshop will take place at Masarykova College just outside the city centre 
of Prague. The registration fee is 150 USD and covers the cost of lodging, 
breakfasts and lunches. Travel support will be available for early-career 
researchers, especially those from developing countries. 

Registration deadline: 15th of February 2019
