The Grant Writer's Handbook: How to Write a Research Proposal and Succeed provides useful and practical advice on all aspects of proposal writing, including developing proposal ideas, drafting the proposal, dealing with referees, and budgeting. The authors base their advice on many years of experience writing and reviewing proposals in many different countries at various levels of scientific maturity. The book describes the numerous kinds of awards available from funding agencies, in particular large collaborative grants involving a number of investigators, and addresses the practical impact of a grant, which is often required of proposals. In addition, information is provided about selection of reviewers and the mechanics of organizing a research grant competition to give the proposal writer the necessary background information. The book includes key comments from a number of experts and is essential reading for anyone writing a research grant proposal.The Grant Writer's Handbook's companion website, featuring regularly updated resources and helpful links, can be found at www.ifm.eng.cam.ac.uk/research/grant-writers-handbook/.

We are considering a future redesign of our premises. Our objective is to offer more ergonomic workspaces, adapted to the needs of our users.

That is why we are conducting a survey. From August 20th to September 6th 2019, please complete the online questionnaire: http://cern.ch/go/6LL9

Since early summer, our team has been considering the question: how do we improve the physical spaces of the library? We have reviewed state-of-the-art libraries and started collecting your opinions through a brainstorming wall and interviews within the library. 

Now we would like even more points of view on, for instance, the furniture that would suit you best, the electrical outlets you need or even how brightly lit the room should be.

The survey will not take you more than 10 minutes. Whether you are a regular user or only come to the Library occasionally, we are interested in your opinion.

The answers to the questionnaire are of course anonymous and confidential. We will not collect your personal data.

If you have any questions, please contact us at this address: library.desk@cern.ch.

Thank you in advance for your participation !
