Beta Research Project Canvas

 Phase: Project Design

Based on the business model canvas (by Osterwalder & colleagues), we developed the beta research project canvas. This allows you to mature your idea napkins into simple one-pager that describes the academic research project in more detail.

Check out this short video in which Nuno Camacho demos the tool on one of our latest projects.

The canvas is composed of three parts, namely:

  1. The right side (the why & what) which provides the audience for the research, the research questions, and the outlets to reach the intended audience
  2. The left side (the how) presents the team to work with, the data to gather, and the analysis methods to use
  3. The bottom side (the when & how much) details project practicalities, such as timing and resources needed.
