What We Do

Scientific Proposal Writing

The proposal is the foundation of any research project. The primary goal of most proposals is to attain funding or resources for your organization. The method by which your ideas are delivered will make the difference between attaining funds now to start the project or starting over when the next opportunity arises. Our team of consultants understand the implications and can work with you to craft a proposal that clearly and coherently lays out the background, purpose, approach, goals, significance, and potential implications in a compelling scientific story.


Our expertise cuts across disciplines, from human physiology, microbiology, and neuroscience to cognitive psychology, organizational development, and behavioral psychology. We can produce a final product from an existing outline or develop the framework and complete the task independently. Novelle has a proven track record of working in a deadline driven environment to help organizations produce compliant proposal responses. Our experts will translate complex technical concepts into clear and concise proposal content for both technical and non-technical audiences and we can deliver graphics, charts, and tables to support creative communication concepts. Whatever your needs, we will deliver a polished product, in line with the current literature and suited to the target audience. Our mantra has always been, “your success is our success”.
