Once you have submitted a proposal, the Commission:
- checks it is admissible (complete and properly put together) and eligible
- asks independent experts to evaluate it
In the evaluation process, proposals are given scores for excellence, impact, and quality and efficiency of implementation – based on the Standard Evaluation Criteria.
A panel then checks that the evaluation criteria have been consistently applied to all proposals for the same call.
Coordinators and Participant Contacts are informed by the Evaluation Results Letter of how their proposal did in the evaluation. They will receive an e-mail notifying them that this letter is available in My Area of the Participant Portal. A positive result does not constitute a confirmed offer of a grant.
Following the evaluation round, grant preparations are opened for the highest-scoring proposals.
