Workshop Invitation: Research Proposal Writing in Beijing, organized by Freie Universitaet Berlin

Dear students of Peking University,
If you are interested in PhD Studies abroad in 2018 the time for application is coming, like the one to the FUB-CSC PhD Program 2018 which offers 50 open PhD positions at Freie Universitaet Berlin (, located in the capital of Germany. Freie Universitaet Berlin is one of the 11 Universities of Excellence in Germany and a leading research university with high performances in sciences, social sciences and humanities.
The application requirements are sometimes difficult to fulfill, particularly to write a ‘research proposal’ for the first time. It should describe your (future) research interest and is a decisive factor for a successful application and funding – now and in your future academic career.
To prepare you and to give you the best chances for your application, I’d like to invite you to a special arranged workshop focusing on ‘Research Proposal Writing’. This is an offer especially for students of Peking University because of our long-term partnership between Peking University and Freie Universitaet Berlin. 
I am happy to announce that the Vice President for Sciences of Freie Universität Berlin, Prof. Dr. Brigitta Schütt, is offering her valuable experiences to conduct a workshop on research proposal writing. She is an outstanding expert in that field because of her numerous distinguished workshops on that topic.

The workshop includes several parts which build on each other:

  1. From research idea to research realization
