'Today's event is primarily intended to help our applicants to overcome psychological barriers. To be successful in competition for academic funding means to obtain new opportunities for R&D and academic, career-related and personal development. Grant-seeking skills are a necessity for researchers nowadays'- said Director of the Center for Grant Support at SibFU, Dr. Natalia Edwards.
