  • Scientific and Technological Quality

  • Training

  • Researcher

  • Implementation

  • Impact


Start now

Criterion 1: Scientific & Technological Quality (S&T) possible

Strengths

Research project well structured , clearly stated research objectives. Provides new information to research community.

Provides relevant and clear description of the state of the art; justifies project - unanswered research questions.

Itemises material needed in order to meet the main project objective. Detail - archaeological sites, lab techniques.

Interdisciplinarity – organic geochemistry and more traditional archaeological techniques.

Host lab and supervisors are recognised world leaders in the field.

Project well-embedded in ongoing European projects, strengthens European collaboration.

Weaknesses

Step-by-step details of some of the techniques are missing.

Questions of sample contamination receive minimal attention.


Start now

Criterion 2: Training possible

Strengths

Training objectives clearly stated.

Training in new technique for the applicant, can only be learned in a few places.

Relevance and quality of additional scientific training and complementary skills are high.

Personal career plan developed by the researcher and the leading scientist.

Complementary skills - project management, presentation skills - will be developed.

Host expertise in training, mentoring & tutoring (number of scholars/students already hosted).

Weaknesses

No training in advanced use of digital resources/IT for extended analysis of results.


Start now

Criterion 3: Researcher possible

Strengths

Publications include books , articles in peer-reviewed international, interdisciplinary & subject-specific

journals.

Displays evidence of independent thinking and leadership.

Proposed research well-matched with applicant's scientific background.

New knowledge acquired and techniques learned will contribute greatly to professional maturity.

Weaknesses

CV not always clear on the nature of funding received and work undertaken.

Coverage in CV of the period 2006-2007 is vague.


Start now

Criterion 4: Implementation possible

Strengths

Facilities available at the Host are state of the art.

Host engaged in international collaborations, experienced in welcoming and training foreign researchers.

Reputation of the supervisor ensures feasibility of the project.

Detailed work plan and schedule for monitoring progress is presented.

Results of a pilot study have demonstrated feasibility and credibility .

Weaknesses

Sufficient time for the dissemination of the results is not planned.

No detail of how practical arrangements for monitoring progress of fellow’s research will be

controlled and evaluated by Host.



Start now

Criterion 5: Impact possible

Strengths

Project will help place Irish material within wider European context.

Results of analysis a subject of interest to both specialists and the general public throughout the ERA.

Project strengthens European leadership in the field of analysis.

Project increases European excellence and competitiveness in archaeological research.

Research collaboration between Ireland, the UK and countries of the ERA will be strengthened.

Skills the fellow will take back to Ireland after fellowship - significant contribution to applicant’s career

Weaknesses

Relevance of research to local, regional, national and international cultural heritage issues?
