Funding requests are frequently technical in nature, because they need to describe accurately for which technology the funding will be used. This is a great task for a technical writer. While the style of a funding request is very formal, which makes the writer’s job a bit more difficult, the satisfaction is huge when the funding is granted.
The following pages are excerpts from a funding request to IWT, the Flemish government agency for innovation through science and technology. The pages below are typical for a funding request for such an agency: a description of the technology, a division into work packages (WP) and a societal base for the use of the technology.
