Lean Model Canvas Approach To Developing Research Grants

Framework for iterating and creating the specific aims page and the grant application.


Writing a grant or designing a transformative new project is hard work, with many different elements of the project needing to be considered and meticulously thought through. An idea for a grant application/project will typically go through many iterations before something great emerges. Hear Dr. Lubman discusses a framework for iterating and working up grant/science project ideas based on the Business Model Canvas system designed for startup companies. It is simple, useful, and can be applied to help write the specific aims page and the rest of the grant application. Much like developing an academic research project, the startup process is very dynamic and creative. Lean startup platforms allows one to work through the issues quickly, evaluate different ideas, and change directions as necessary. Dr. Lubman hopes to convince you that writing a finalized business plan is similar to writing a finalized grant application. Every new research project idea is similar to a new startup company idea. A lot of work and iteration is required before a new research project idea is worthy of a full grant application making the Business Model Canvas style framework a perfect tool for developing new research projects.
