Making research proposals

Posted on


There’s a fantastic post from Phil Ward over at Research Fundermentals, on the “Essential Elements of a Good Application“. He breaks the complex issue of writing a grant proposal into its most basic components. I love a complex idea made simple (by which I mean ‘accessible’). Paraphrasing a couple of speakers at a session he attended, Phil breaks grants down into three simple principles:

·         Firstly, it must ask an important question;
·         Secondly, it must offer a realistic chance of a solution within the time;
·         Finally, it must be run by someone who knows what they’re doing.
Neat, eh? He goes on to expand on the details later in the post. If you’re thinking of writing a proposal, I’d definitely check it out.
