    I first read the title of this thinking it pertained to the conservatism that has crept into research proposals due to a reticence of reviewers and agencies to support high risk/unpredictable research. Given that research is about exploring new ideas, that originality is paramount and that often the best work challenges dogma, perhaps someone can draw up some new guidelines that do, indeed, push back on the trend towards only supporting incremental and iterative research studies?
