Applications should take the form of a research proposal for each proposed paper. This should include:
the specific knowledge gap that the research is directed towards (with explicit reference to relevant sections of our three gaps documents)
clarification on the following question: what is the contribution that the proposed research will make to filling the particular knowledge gap?
the resultant focused research questions
data and research methods
the researcher(s) involved, her/his qualifications, interests, expertise, experience and track record (e.g. research output) in the relevant area
time-frame; for example, 8-12 months or , 2 years
Applications may also include the following information:
sequencing and prioritisation (relative to a researcher's other submissions, if any)
an indication of whether this is new or ongoing research
other relevant information.
To assist researchers in compiling their proposals, we have developed an application template. The template will also facilitate the provision of feedback by enabling the REDI3x3 management team to engage with a proposer on aspects of the proposal that may need further development (including alignment with the project gaps and topics) and to come to an agreement and contract.
