- Early stage independent investigators (“Starting Grants”)
> 2 < 9 years after PhD
up to 5 years project
~1/3 of the annual budget:
300-350 M€ per year (200 grants)
- Established Investigators (“Advanced Grants”)
Quality of research output: Has the Principal Investigator published in high quality peer reviewed journals or the equivalent? To what extent are these publications ground-breaking and demonstrative of independent creative thinking and capacity to go significantly beyond the state of the art?
Intellectual capacity and creativity: To what extent does the Principal Investigator's record of research collaborations, project conception, supervision of students and publications demonstrate that he/she isable to confront major research challenges in the field, and to initiate new productive lines of thinking?
2. Quality of the proposed research project
Ground-breaking nature of the research: Does the proposed research address important challenges in the field(s) addressed? Does it have suitably ambitious objectives, which go substantially beyond thecurrent state of the art (e.g. including trans-disciplinary developments and novel or unconventiona approaches)?
Potential impact: Does the research open new and important scientific, technological or scholarly horizons?
Methodology: a) is the outlined scientific approach (including the activities to be undertaken by the individual team members) feasible? (Stage 1) b) is the proposed research methodology (including when pertinent the use of instrumentation, other type of infrastructures etc.) comprehensive and appropriate for to the project? Will it enable the goals of the project convincingly to be achieved within the timescales and resources proposed and the level of risk associated with a challenging research project? (Stage 2)
3. Research Environment
Transition to independence: Will the proposed project enable the Principal Investigator to make or consolidate the transition to independence?
Hosting institution (normally applicant legal entity): Does the institution hosting the project have most of the infrastructure necessary for the research to be carried out? Is it in a position to provide an appropriate intellectual environment and infrastructural support and to assist in achieving the ambitions for the project and the Principal Investigator?
Participation of other legal entities: If it is proposed that other legal entities participate in the
project, in addition to the applicant legal entity, is their participation fully justified by the scientificadded value they bring to the project?FP7 / IDEASStarting Grants / Evaluation criteria
