The Heilmeier Catechism, developed by George H. Heilmeier, is a series of nine questions originally used to evaluate proposed research programs at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). This presentation will provide an overview of these questions, which can be employed to develop stronger, more competitive proposals by providing a framework for proposal organization that works for nearly all research areas and disciplines. Participants will learn how to employ these questions to create a compelling narrative and increase their chances of funding. This presentation is facilitated by the Office of Foundation Relations.

Who: Ohio State faculty, postdocs and graduate student researchers
When: Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021 from 1 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Where: Remote (a personalized Zoom link will be included in the registration confirmation email)
