  1. Strategies for Successful in Proposal Writing PROCESS AND FORMS: Strategic Technologies Program Grants CNPSTI - STPG Khalid F Abuhaimed

  2. Full Research Proposal Application Form CCNPSTI Form RE-D1

  3. PROJECT INFORMATION CCNPSTI Form RE -D1-1

  4. THE PROPOSAL SHOULD INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS: Summary (English): Summary (Arabic): INTRODUCTION PROJECT OBJECTIVES LITERATURE REVIEW DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED WORK

  5. 4.1Approach, tasks and phases: Form RE -D1-2 MAPPING OF PHASES AND TASKS TO ACHIEVE OBJECTIVES Form RE -D1-3 ROLE AND INVOLVEMENT DURATION OF RESEARCH TEAM Form RE -D1-4

  6. 4.2 Research methodology 4.3Management Plan, (Form RE -D1-5) . PROJECT WORK PLAN Form RE- D1-5

  7. 4.4Project Deliverables: This should provide a clear statement of the expected real, tangible and measurable outcomes of the proposed research project. Relationship to the project objectives and linkages with goals of the concerned Strategic Technology Program must be elaborated (Form RE -D1-6). RELATIONSHIP TO STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK Form RE- D1-6

  8. 5. VALUE TO THE KINGDOM: • PROJECT EXECUTION: • 6.1 Current Resources: • 6.2 Requested Resources: • 6.3 Proposed Budget: Fill (Form RE-D1-7) to detail the budget in tabular form including all requested resources for the entire duration of proposed research project. Note that equipment valued at less than SR 10,000 should be included in the materials and consumables section.

  9. FORM RE- D1-7

  10. 6.4 Budget Justification: A detailed justification of the funding requested in each budget subcategory outlined in subsection 6.3. should specify if the equipment and infrastructure to be purchased using requested funds would be used in other research projects UNDERTAKING OF THE RESEARCH TEAM: (Form RE -D1-8) • REFERENCES • CV’s OF RESEARCHERS

  11. STI Execution CNPSTI-STPG ProjectsPhases 4 1 2 3 Approval Solicitation &Proposal Formal Evaluation Technical Evaluation • Approval is sought from the Supervisory Committee • Project Funding is managed through Secretariat of the CNPSTI • Project Funding is executed through STU • Projects are announced on the CNPSTI portal beginning of each year • The deadlines of submitting proposals are end of March and October of every year • Formal evaluation of compliance with established procedures • Initial formal evaluation is conducted at STU • Second formal evaluation is conducted at KACST • Technical evaluation is conducted through the peer review process • AAAS

  12. CNPSTI-STPG Projects Policies Policy Framework Guidelines (1/3) • Proposals are initially reviewed at STUs based on the following criteria: • The proposal must be complete • The PI must be qualified to execute the project • The project must be evaluated for legal and ethical compliance • Proposals are then reviewed at the CNPSTI secretariat based on the following criteria: • The proposal must be complete and written as per the standard format provided by CNPSTI. • The project must be viable and tackling a problem in one area of the programs of the Strategic Technologies as described by CNPSTI. • The project must not have been conducted before

  13. Guidelines (2/3) • Technical Evaluation • The merit review conducted by (AAAS) • Analyze the proposal against the following criteria: • 1- The quality of the proposal research. Is the proposed research innovative? Can it contribute significantly to the state of knowledge in its field? How does the proposes research compared to established programs ? • 2- The impact of proposed program : Advance discovery and understanding, enhance the infrastructure for research, potential impact on institution, benefits to society? • 3- The path to success: reasonable costs, time, resources • Rating the proposal against each criteria using a scale from 1(very impressive) to 5 (seriously flows against criteria) • Overall, how would reviewer rate the proposal for funding • Reviewers provide funding recommendation (Highly Recommended, Recommended, Not Recommended) along with evaluation reports

  14. STI Execution CNPSTI-STPG ProjectsPolicies Policy Framework Guidelines (3/3) • Funding and Follow-up • Funding is provided in predetermined installments as per the funding contract between the PI and KACST • PI is required to submit financial and technical reports to the Director of the STU every 6 months • PI is required to submit final financial and technical reports to the STU upon project completion • Technical Reports must highlight the following, • The achievements during the period of the report and progress towards achieving objectives • The technical problems faced by the investigators during that period, if any • An updated plan project plan with proposed changes if required • Risk management and quality assurance reports • Financial Reports must highlight the following, • Incurred expenses • Time charged for all personnel on project • Funding is immediately amended if the project reports fail to reflect proposal plans • Change of Goals, Budget or Duration: • Any changes of project goals or objectives, if requested, must be evaluated by the same merit reviewers who approved the funding • The budget shifts, if requested, must be approved by the CNPSTI secretariat • Project duration, if requested, must be approved by the CNPSTI secretariat
