Episode Description

This week on The Method Section, Tom goes through the process of writing a project proposal to get funding. If you are an aspiring scientist or even an experienced one, this is something you will have to do time after time. This is an opportunity for you to showcase yourself, you team, and your project and why it deserves funding over others. Tom explores here the classic pitfalls researchers make when applying for funding and the things you can do to maximise your chances. Also included is a set of questions you can ask yourself to get you started. Music by: Joakim Karud –
