Magdalena was invited to give a Grant Writing Workshop for professors and researchers at the Faculty of Psychology. This was new for most of us and since Magdalena uses a holistic psychological approach to science productivity I must say that some researchers went to the workshop with doubtful thoughts in their minds….After all we are all psychologists to start with, what could she teach us? It turns out the workshop was a huge success! In a very professional and yet enjoyable way, Magdalena took us through a series of very simple but revealing exercises that not only allowed us to clearly identify each one’s strong and weak points but also prompted many of us to get started on our grant proposals. In sum, we benefited a great deal from the workshop, it was a definitely worthwhile investment and I would strongly recommend it to other research institutions.
