iNEXT Executive Review Panel (ERP)
iNEXT External reviewers
Proposals are assessed for their scientific merit, but also for their value for translational research, their technical feasibility and the quality of the team. The detailed score criteria are:
- Scientific Excellence of the proposed research theme
6. Internationally outstanding
1. Not competitive
- Relevance for Translational Research in Health, Biotechnology, or nanomaterials
3. Highly relevant
2. Possibly relevant
1. No translational component
- Scientific Track Record of the team
2. Outstanding team
- Technical Feasibility
1. Not feasible
Please notice that a proposal failing one of the criteria listed above (achieving a red score) will be rejected. In addition, it will be necessary to achieve a score of at least 10 points to qualify for approval. Some access modalities are extremely popular and will need higher scores to achieve access, for other cases achieving a qualifying score will be enough. Adjustment to these will be made according to available budgets and perceived popularity.
We aim for rapid turnaround of proposals (few weeks). Some of the more complicated proposals (especially in the Enhanced Support access theme) may be pooled and ranked periodically.
Following approval, experiments are scheduled by the facilities.
