ESSENTIALS FOR A WINNING PROPOSAL

  • Outstanding track record presented in cogent, convincing terms, and backed up with evidence
  • Lucid and significant overarching research question - establish that the research is urgent/timely/original
  • Some kind of empirical element where a clearly identified body of data needs collecting and analyzing
  • Interpretive sub-questions about that data
  • Substantial research outputs/outcomes, (interpretation of data collected)
  • Feasible plan that offers value for money (builds European research capacity)
  • Clearly communicated commitment and competence
  • All major elements fit within remit of ERC funding programme
slide19

BASICS

  • clear and absolutely precise language a must
  • avoid convoluted syntax (will a non-native speaker be able to read with ease?)
  • sensible layout – headings and subheadings, lots of whitespace
  • edit ferociously to get rid of wordiness and maximize space for content
  • give clear indication of outputs (don’t promise the world)
  • different sections of proposal must speak to each other (with no contradictions)
  • finish at least 3 weeks before deadline to get useful feedback
slide20

ARTS RESEARCHERS CAN DO IT

  • Analytical skills to interpret brief
  • Interesting histories to pitch themselves
  • Argumentation – convince of importance
  • Creative skills to design the research
  • People management skills
  • Resources: creativity of stakeholders
  • Difference/interest factor
  • Proof of Concept grant: impact/commercialisation
  • €150k for interactive version of live exhibition and two artists residencies, plus admin and videography
