In today's highly competitive funding climate, investigators must assume that their great research ideas will be competing against a wealth of other great ideas; the proposals that 'rise above' are those that spark an exceptionally high level of enthusiasm in reviewers by presenting compelling arguments for not only the research's methodologic rigor, but also the project's anticipated impact on the field, significance for various stakeholders (patients, researchers, clinicians, investigators in different but related fields), degree of innovation, and alignment with the funding agency's priority areas. All of these proposal features are addressed during coaching sessions within the NRMN-P3 program.
