Note:
A glance at literature may reveal that organizations use different
methods for presenting a project definition document. This is
particularly true in cases where an organisation that funds the
projects oblige the applicants (project investigators/ project
managers) to fill a research proposal form provided by that particular
funding organisation. An example of such a form is the ?Research
proposal form, EPS (RP), provided by EPSRC, the Engineering and
Physical Science Research Council. EPSRC funds the collaborative
research projects proposed by a network of industry and academia.
Click on the following website to obtain EPS (RP) research proposal
form:
http://osam.eee.nottingham.ac.uk/optics/downloads/forms/theforms/epsrc_rp1.pdf
As can be seen in the EPSRC research proposal form (shown at the above
website), the applicants are required to give details of their
proposed project in section 1 of the form under the heading of ?1
DETAILS OF PROPOSAL?, providing the following information about their
project:
? Title of Research project (not to exceed 108 characters.)
? Objectives (List main objectives of the proposed research in order
of priority.)
? Summary (Describe the proposed research in about 200 words.)
The form also requires additional information such as Beneficiaries.
An example of a completed EPSRC research proposal form is shown in the
following website:
