INTELCORE seeks sound proposals of work which directly advance the high-technology sectors it focuses upon. Creators, scientists, researchers, engineers and academicians – working individually or as part of a larger group – are invited to submit proposals and ideas for any kind of innovation, invention or development. Technology companies in early stages of growth are also encouraged to submit concepts, as are academic and scientific institutions. Although contacting INTELCORE prior to submitting a proposal is not necessary, prospective applicants are welcome to do so. Similarly, while these submission guidelines are not mandatory, correctly compiled submittals greatly assist INTELCORE's team in reviewing and assessing each proposal's merit.

To optimize and streamline preliminary proposal reviewing due to the large number of proposals received regularly, INTELCORE is unable to enter into non-disclosure agreements until the proposal is approved for business planning and subsequent development (Phase 2). However INTELCORE's strong ethical standards safeguard the confidential nature of all the proposals it receives in Phase 1.

The following checklist is an essential prerequisite to creating proposals and should be thoroughly reviewed prior to making a submission. Each section is important and relevant details should be provided whenever possible. Additionally, all proposals should provide full contact information (names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses etc.) for the concept's main originators. Finally, while the proposal's format and style is not dictated efforts should be made to ensure legibility, clarity and structure.

Proposal Submission Checklist


1. Does the concept satisfy INTELCORE's participation criteria, such as the contemporary sectors which INTELCORE focuses upon?

2. Does the proposal's introduction clearly explain the basic concept and how it originated?

3. How the idea is technically defined? If possible, the proposal should provide a full technical description?

4. Does the proposal explain why the proposed 'solution' is necessary, its unique selling point (USP) and what kind of customer demand it is expected to serve?

5. Does the concept have any technical and/or legal limitations? If so, the proposal should cover these areas and ideally suggest ways which may help in overcoming these limitations.

6. Does the concept impact the economy directly? The proposal should highlight the concept’s economic aspects and impacts.

7. How do the professional and/or academic backgrounds of the concept’s originators influence the concept’s implementation? The proposal should explain what core strengths the originators can contribute to the concept’s success.

3. Has any technical risk assessment been carried out? If so, please provide details?

4. How do the originators measure the concept's success? The proposal should explain success in terms of tangible criteria such as market share, expansion, diversification, patents, licensing and so forth.

5. Are there any planned variations or extensions of the concept? Is the concept (or its inherent technology) scalable in any way?
