There are many different factors that come into play when writing a funding application. You can have the most revolutionary, ground-breaking scientific idea in the world, but if your application does not convey that sense of excitement in a way that is easily understandable, it is very difficult to secure funding. This doesn't only mean that it is written well in terms of language, but that it is understandable by people who are not experts in your field. Below you will find examples of 3 projects that I was heavily involved with in the search for funding. All 3 of these projects were approved for funding in the fall of 2017. I have included an excerpt from one of the applications that covers the field of interest, and not the specific innovation. You will also find a dissemination plan for a university project that has applied for funding from the Centre for Digital Life. Identifying information has been removed as this application is still pending.
