Abstract
The abstract is a brief summary of your Ph.D. Research Proposal, and
should be no longer than 200 words. It starts by describing in a few
words the knowledge domain where your research takes place and the
key issues of that domain that offer opportunities for the scientific or
technological innovations you intend to explore. Taking those key issues
as a background, you then present briefly your research statement, your
proposed research approach, the results you expect to achieve, and the
anticipated implications of such results on the advancement of the
knowledge domain.
To keep your abstract concise and objective, imagine that you were
looking for financial support from someone who is very busy. Suppose
that you were to meet that person at an official reception and that she
would be willing to listen to you for no more than two minutes. What
you would say to that person, and the pleasant style you would adopt in
those two demanding minutes, is what you should put in your abstract.
The guidelines provided in this template are meant to be used creatively
and not, by any means, as a cookbook recipe for the production of
research proposals.
Keywords
This section is an alphabetically ordered list of the more appropriate
words or expressions (up to twelve) that you would introduce in a search
engine to find a research proposal identical to yours. The successive
keywords are separated by comas.
