    Coherent (problems, solutions, target groups, activities, budget, ambitions/resources/competence)
    Simple and clear (identifying the need for such a proposal, the solutions, and the outputs)
    Evidence based (ex-ante needs analysis, state of art)
    Rigorous planning (which activities, when, for how long, and with what resources)
