Quality criteria for research proposals

1. Strength of the applicant - Including training, research publication record (relevance, quality of journals) and recommendations.

2. Novelty of the research question - Including societal and scientific importance. This may include plans to obtain data in support of a future application to a major granting institution. Hypothesis testing is preferred over empirical data collection. Exploratory research on particularly interesting ideas is encouraged, even if there is a risk of failure.

3. Quality of the research plan - The plan should lead to a clear answer to the question(s) posed, within the time and budget available. Projects that are overly ambitious have to be avoided.
