Scope! The project description should include a maximum 2000 words (equivalent to about 5 pages with font Times New Roman, 12 point font and 1 1/2 spacing. In addition, reference lists , in alphabetical order . Applications that do not comply with these limits will not be considered!! Outline!

! Title ( informative and concise )! ! Short summary ( about 10 lines)! !

The abstract should briey summarize the main points below. The purpose is to give the reader enough information to assess the project's academic potential , but also the relevance of the Academy's research activity. A summary the project in its short form , the idea is that a well thought-out project also is briey outlined project .!

! Research question / hypothesis (about half a page )! ! !

One issue is a presentation of what constitutes the project's core and academic motivation. The issue should answer the "what" , "how" and "why " . A hypothesis may be advantageously presented.! The issue will clarify and articulate what is the project's main challenge and contribution , it shall also provide the reader of this outline a relevant perspective for understanding the design of the project.!

! Background of the project ( 1-2 pages)! !

How can the project complement previous research and contribute new insights ? The project must relate to existing research, you must demonstrate knowledge of similar research projects and relevant literature. Present the project's originality and novelty . Arguments for why it is important to invest in this project.!

! Conduct literature searches ( RILM , JSTOR , BIBSYS etc.) .! ! Theoretical framework (1 /2 to 1 page )! ! ! Materials and Methods ( approximately 1 page )! !

! Additional Information! ! ! Dissemination! !

Present the card to your background and qualications that make you suitable for the project. Describe any partners or research networks that are relevant to the project . Arguments for the project's feasibility. Need a project abroad ? Linguistic qualications mentioned explicitly in the extent relevant for the project.!

How will the project be communicated? ( Monograph , articles , lectures , CD recording , web presentation , presentations / posters at conferences , etc ) .!

Make a schedule for three years , divided into six semesters, where you list the key milestones for the project. Also include education section ( course / event ) and any study outside the Academy . Everyone should expect that the rst term is mainly spent on courses and essay writing on scientic theory and method (part of the training component ) .
