A good idea Of course, without a genuine, original research theme you can’t even begin. The research you would like to do has to be significant in some way, from developing a new method to basic research. It should be new and useful for scientific community. This is very clear to everyone, but maybe it is more difficult to explain why your idea is so significant. The way to do it is to give in your proposal the answers to following questions:
What is the knowledge gap that you are trying to fill?What do you plan to do to fill that gap (methods), and what "answers" do you hope to generate (results)?If you fill that gap, how will it change the way we think and act in this research area?Why does it have to be done right know, why does it matter now?
