As Dr Sylvie presented, there are 5 key sections that form a grant proposal.

How do you approach each of these key sections? What are the most important, in your opinion? Have you any lessons or reflections on these sections and what to include?

  • I think the background/rationale + aims (overall or specificic) and also the methods used in order to achieve your Research objectives.
    In addition, one of the prerequisite that i have learnt with time: "Follow the (call) instructions". I think by doing that, it improves your chances to win the grant considered.
