a. Introduction / research background: illustrate the problem, which your research will be addressing, explains its academic and industrial context in general terms.
b. Project aim and objectives: define the overall aim of the project and the specific measurable objectives that you plan to achieve. You should phrase your objectives in a way that once achieved will demonstrate successful achievement of the overall aim.
c. Review of existing work / literature: demonstrate knowledge and critical understanding of work in the subject area by synthesizing at least 5 academic references (10-15 is standard, normal) of relevance to your work using the Harvard style of referencing, bringing to bear not only existing concepts but also emerging themes and applications from the real world.
d. Research methodology: it is unlikely that, at this stage, you will have much if any idea of this, but if you do, this should include information on the general methodological approach you intend to adopt, and techniques to be used for data collection and analysis.
e. Industrial or commercial research contacts: an indication of where and how you will be able to gather and conduct research on your subject matter and the manner by which you will gain access to relevant stakeholders or data.
f. Problems: identification of likely problems and methods of resolution.
g. Timetable / Project Plan: describe the tasks you need to conduct in order to complete the Project, identifying major milestones by which you will monitor the progress of your Project (e.g. completion of literature review, completion of data collection). This can be illustrated by a simple diagrammatic work plan (Gantt chart) or similar. The work plan is not included in the word limit of the Proposal and represents a one-page appendix to this.
