A high-quality NSFC proposal is essential for project grant application. How to properly show the innovativeness of the project with the limited space of proposal, so that the academic idea, research content and technical route of the project can be agreed by reviewers, is not an easy task. It requires not only preliminary research work and research background, but also appropriate organization of the proposal. In this talk, I will talk about some skills and tips for improving the quality of a NSFC proposal from the perspective of peer-review.
