Olivier SCHAETZLE, PhD., Grants Office, Institut Pasteur (France)

Initially, with a background in biology with a focus on environmental microbiology, I eventually obtained a PhD in Chemistry for research work in the field of Microbial Fuel Cells a the University of Rennes 1 in 2010. I was then recruited in a Dutch research Institute, on a European project where beside my research I was acting as assistant of the coordinator. This first experience working in a European project led me to be part of the dedicated team in charge of applying for more European funds and develop my skills in project engineering. Since July 2018 I work at Institut Pasteur’s Grants Office where I scout for new funding opportunities, assist researchers in obtaining fundings and help them manage their granted projects.

Webinar Content:

In order to respond to European calls for projects, one must understand the logic behind what a project is to make it convincing to the reviewers. In this webinar, we will explore the European project management terminology (what is a work package? what is the difference between deliverables and milestones ?). We will also touch on the difference between communication, dissemination and exploitation to help you address the impact section of European proposals.


Slides in English, Speech in French.
