6. 6/15/2012 6 Funding decisions are based on peer review of research proposals There is no juste retour! High quality evaluators are at the core of the evaluation system Involves 4500 to 5000 independent experts every year About 16,000 proposals (and rising) are evaluated annually

7. 6/15/2012 7 Wide pool of evaluators (c. 50,000 in FP6) Calls for “candidates” are published in the OJ Call for applications from individuals Call addressed to institutions Applications via CORDIS New calls are planned end-November 2007 Commission invites individuals from the database on a call-by call basis Sometimes at rather short notice! Selection based on expertise, experience, qualifications Geography, gender and « rotation » also considered

8. 6/15/2012 8 Experts agree to terms and conditions of an “appointment letter” Typically, an individual will review 6-8 proposals “remotely”…. …then spend a couple of days in Brussels Some will participate in the hearings with the consortia Travel and subsistence reimbursed Plus €450 honorarium per day Experts sign confidentiality and conflict of interest declaration Names published after the evaluations

12. 6/15/2012 12 Criteria adapted to each funding scheme and each thematic area are specified in the work programme Divided into three main criteria (FP7): (S&T) Quality of proposal Likely impact Quality of implementation
