The Lifecycle represents all activities typically involved in a research project. The activities may be programmatic (scientific) or administrative in nature, or both. They begin with forming a hypothesis or research question, and conclude with final financial reports and scientific publications. In most cases, a new research project begins its Lifecycle based on a hypothesis or question developed from the results of a previous project.
