Some recommendations for DOE scientists preparing a SERDP
proposal is to consider a project that:
is essential for the solution of a major mission readiness
is supportive of policy formulation and/or program-level
decisions – explicit responses to SONS are generally much more
successful than projects that propose a weak link to the SONs.
is catalytic in causing the initiation, organization, and/or
acceleration of other essential research.
- partners with a DoD site or with PIs working at a DoD site
plays to the uniqueness of DOE capabilities when justifying
