    Advice to authors of grant proposals: Proposals which provide convincing answers to the questions in Heilmeier’s Catechism are a lot more likely to get funded than those which don’t.

    Heilmeier’s Catechism for evaluating a research project:
    1. What are you trying to do? (Articulate your objectives quantitatively, using absolutely no jargon)
    2. How is it done today and what are the limits of current practice?
    3. What is new in your approach and why do you think it will be successful?
    4. Who cares? If it is successful, what difference will it make?
    5. (If it’s applied R&D) How will you commercialize or transition the technology to the users? What resources or strategic partners will you need?
    6. What are the risks in implementing your approach and how will you address them in your project?
    7. How much will it cost to reach your ultimate objective? How long will it take?
    8. What are the intermediate and final milestones that will demonstrate success?
