This comprehensive workshop provides an overview of research funding opportunities and possibilities for collaboration in humanities and social sciences in Europe, and between scholars of these fields in Europe and in Asia. You will get to learn about research funding schemes available in Europe, including from the European Union, European Science Foundation, and agencies such as research councils, academies and universities:

- Find out how successful research collaborations and networking activities are set up from examples and case studies.
- Be provided with valuable information and knowledge on setting up networks and linking-up with research teams in Europe and beyond.
- Be coached on best practices for writing proposals for research funding and responding to calls for proposals, again with real-life examples.
- Have ample opportunities for networking and ‘match-making’ with other researchers to exchange interests and explore collaborative possibilities.

The workshop was well attended by 60 participants at the NTU@one-north campus (off North Buona Vista Road).
