Are you involved in research and interested in exploring opportunities for financial support through donations, fundraising, chairs, and legacies? The University Fund guides and advises on the possibilities to support research, education, and services at Ghent University.
The team of the University Fund will illustrate the distinctions between donations, funds, chairs, and legacies through best practices in healthcare. After a general introduction into Fundraising, the team will focus more in-depth on Academic Chairs: Why are they considered a win-win situation? How does funding for a chair come about? What role do you play during the collaboration?
In addition to explaining the overall strategy, the session will feature inspiring examples from research groups.
This seminar is aimed at (1) researchers who have not yet utilized the University Fund but are interested in exploring possibilities for donations, gifts, chairs, and funds, and (2) researchers who are currently benefiting from the University Fund but wish to gain further insights into specific nuances, aspects, or additional funding opportunities.
Guest speakers: Terry Ediers, Elien Wanzeele, Wim Van der Planken, Liesbeth Plovie (Universiteitsfonds UGent)
