NDPIA will together with the Swedish Society for Microbiology (SFM) organize a scientific meeting, the 4th NDPIA/SFM Day, 2 October 2018 with the aim to promote interdisciplinary scientific interactions. The programme features invited keynote speakers, short presentations selected from abstracts and a poster walk. The meeting will be held at Hjortviken Konferens outside Gothenburg. The meeting provides an opportunity to present and discuss research projects and to expand scientific networks.
The NDPIA/SFM Day will be preceded by an NDPIA workshop on English writing/grant proposal writing 1 October.
This intensive lecture workshop focuses on sentence level, paragraph level, and global level writing analysis and revision strategies. You will learn specific sets of analytical and revision skills that are transferable to both grant writing and article writing.
You will be provided with a short notebook that includes a review of the main topics and techniques covered in the course. Many of the writing samples we use to illustrate writing analysis techniques and revision strategies are from researchers based in Sweden. In addition, there is a plan to supplement the course with a series of on-line lessons for students who would like to review the topics introduced in the course.
