2. Taking into account the current state of the art highlight the novelty and contribution
to knowledge upon successful completion of your project.

preliminary results (e.g. a pilot data set and initial data analysis).
4. Present the research methodology you plan to follow. Include a description of your planned approach for data analysis including the statistical techniques you are
planning to use.

Decide and present the various deadlines, milestones and deliverables. If more than one person is to be involved specify which tasks will be delegated to whom. As part of your project plan comment on your contingency plan i.e. what alternative steps you have to follow in case your original planning fails.
6. Produce a costing report for the various resources you will need (manpower, equipment, consumables, consultancy, travel etc).
7. Highlight the relevance to beneficiaries, i.e. who will benefit by the research findings and how.
8. Briefly mention how the business/research findings will be disseminated (e.g. conferences, workshops, seminars, journal publications, press releases).
9. Present the track record of the investigators involved showing why they would be capable of undertaking and completing such a project.
10. Conclude and summarize your report.
11. Include a reference and bibliographical list. Make sure you use a formal referencing scheme (e.g. Harvard, Vancouver).
