•             What facets of this technology development are especially hot?

•             What is on the cutting edge in my area of interest so I can be sure my focus is novel?

•             Who else at my or another university is doing research related to mine?

•             Are there applications for my research outside its current area?

•             Who is citing my research and what are they doing?

•             For my interdisciplinary proposal, which local university resources should I include?
