- How the ‘project’ will be carried out.
- The key resource requirements (expertise and facilities).
- An outline budget (identifying as appropriate items such as: course fees, stipend/living/travel, materials, contribution to o/heads, staff costs, other costs e.g hire charges, specialist fees, laboratory charges) indicating the level of funding that has been obtained/applied for from other sources.
- The main risks.
- Other individuals/organisations involved as collaborators, funders etc.
- Details of the ‘parent’ organisation or institution and, where appropriate, the project supervisor.
