Some ideal paths (e.g. towards a University of Applied Sciences professor in Germany) even require changing back and forth. Where do you see yourselves?

  7. 7. © Christoph Lange 2016 Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS & University of Bonn Structure of a Research Project As a researcher, most of your work will be in projects:  Projects with public funding (national, bi-national, EU, …)  Often involving multiple partner institutions  Contractual R&D for industrial clients So you should know how such projects work. 3Source: http://www.phdcomics.com/comics/archive.php?comicid=701
  8. 8. © Christoph Lange 2016 Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS & University of Bonn Lifecycle of a (Publicly Funded) Research Project 4 Idea Proposal = Application  Often hard deadline  Involves commitment of partners Preparation  Grant agreement  Consortium agreement  Recruiting/ hiring Funding body Project  Results  Work packages  Tasks  Deliverables  Milestones  Meetings Call influences influences turns into if approved If rejected: re-try For applied projects Exploitation  Products/Services  Spin-offs must match Community &Society benefits
