FAQ

 

(1) CAN THE SAME PERSON SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE PROPOSAL, EITHER AS PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR OR AS AN INVESTIGATOR/PARTNER?

 

There is no rule as to how many project proposals can be submitted by one person. However, given the limited amount of money currently available and the expected high number of projects proposed, it seems likely that the Review Group may wish to incorporate geographical spread as one of the criterion, for projects that have the required scientific acceptability. Of course, this will not only be a consideration for the evaluation committee but ultimately for the full Scientific Committee.

 

(2) KEY STAKEHOLDERS - CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHAT IS BEING SOUGHT HERE?

 

Here we seek evidence that this is truly practical conservation research by showing reference to co-operation with relevant interested authorities/experts/NGOs, etc. at the local and international level as appropriate.

 

‘Stakeholders’ are not meant to be simply theoretically interested authorities/experts/NGOs, etc. Rather, proponents should try to list those that will really benefit from their project, because they are already interested in its outputs or because they will be able to continue relevant work locally in the future. ‘Stakeholders’ are meant to be interested authorities/experts/NGOs, etc., officially supporting - either morally or financially - the project proposal in an official way, but are not included as partners.

 

(3) PROPOSAL DETAILS - 3000 WORDS.  DOES THIS INCLUDE REFERENCES?

 

You can exclude references from the 3000 words limit and you may use references only where they are directly relevant.

 

(4) PROPOSAL DETAILS - CAN YOU EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “SCIENTIFIC METHODOLOGY AND APPROACH” AND “PROGRAMME AND PLAN OF RESEARCH”?

 

The first represents details of the scientific practical and analytical methods (‘how’), the second refers to the practical programme for collection and analyses (‘where’, ‘when’ and ‘who’ along with an associated timeline for these). In addition, there is the information to be included in the summary tables.
