Not to sure where to start with Research Project

Hi Everyone, 

I hope this isn't too silly a post but I'm struggling to know exactly where to get started or how to pursue the UID - Research Project. Maybe I got used to the assessment briefs in previous videos but the video brief seemed very vague and a bit rushed. I'm not entirely sure how I am supposed to choose a specific area to improve upon other than the city college example. Or how I am supposed to start the first section word count wise. Has anyone else had a similar issue? Or has anyone completed this section and mind giving me a little more guidance? 

Thank you
