A Statement of Your Most Significant Contributions to this Research Field

I have to write this for the grant applications I'm planning on filing early next year. Usually, in job applications you have to write about your current and planned research. But this is different and a bit weird. It feels a bit like I'm writing my own obituary :)

For U.S. grants you just send them your (condensed) CV. Australia is much more into giving money to individuals than for specific topics. I once had to write a "scientific autobiography" for a job I applied for in Israel. That was the same idea more or less.
