SME Instrument Phase 1 Mini Proposal Clinic
The SME Instrument Phase 1 Proposal Clinic is an examination of your SME-1 proposal, including an interactive feedback in a form of 45 minutes Skype session, where we provide you with recommendations to reach the proposal's full potential.
Proposal Clinic is the best choice when you need another set of eyes to independently assess your proposal before submitting it. You can count on thorough and frank assessment, comparable to official SME Instrument evaluation process, with concrete advice and improvement tips.
Step 1: You must send us your SME-1 proposal in its current form at least 48 hours before we can provide you with feedback. We will then do some background research on the topic and previous projects funded in the area, and thoroughly examine the proposal.
Step 2: We will provide an interactive feedback on the proposal in a form of 45 minutes Skype session. The debate will provide you with recommendations for improvements in order to reach the full potential of the proposal. Concrete advice and instructions will help you improve your SME-1 proposal and significantly increase your chances of winning the SME Instrument grant.
We will also provide you with our notes, summarizing:
- general impression of the proposal
