National Science Foundation (NSF) being the premier organization in fostering STI in the country is committed to strengthen the research scientists to develop competitive research proposals to secure international funding and collaborate with global talent pool. Tapping the global funding opportunities is one of the key drivers of leveraging STI. 

Addressing the above need, the NSF in collaboration with the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB), Italy conducted organized a successful webinar on effective proposal writing. This was held on 22nd March 2022. Objective of the webinar was to make researchers, especially the early-career researchers aware of how to successfully pitch their research proposals to ICGEB collaborative research programme (CRP) 2022 call which provides financial support to carry out research addressing original scientific problems of relevance for the host country and of regional interests in the fields of basic sciences, human healthcare, industrial & agricultural biotechnology and bioenergy.

Dr Vittorio Venturi, ICGEB Scientific Coordinator and Ms Tijana Delic, ICGEB Consultant, External Relations delivered information on the CRP Call and lessons learnt.  CRP guidelines and evaluation criteria in preparing a competitive proposal were also addressed.  The presentations were highly informative for a new researcher in the field to come up with a well-structured and competitive CRP proposal.

Prof. Shiroma M. Hadunneti, Prof. of Immunology, Institute of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IBMBB), University of Colombo, a past ICGEB-CRP grantee shared her experience with ICGEB from the point of getting the grant towards its completion.
