Would it be ok to include a summary of the background in the CT doc as well to make it easier to understand, or can I assume who ever reads it has read the scientific background in the proposal?

Answer: 

Reviewers may have different backgrounds. Therefore the proposal should be written in such a way that it can also be understood and assessed by an evaluator who is not an expert in exactly that scientific field.
