After the call deadline, all applications will be available for review to the Assessment Committee in the online application system. If it becomes clear before, during, or after the peer review assessment phase that one or more of the eligibility criteria have not been met, the assessment will be negative based on the argument that the eligibility criterion has not been met. Please find more information on the eligibility criteria and admissibility requirements here.
Following the line of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, your application will be evaluated against three pre-determined evaluation criteria: Excellence (weighs 50%), Impact (weighs 30%), and Implementation (weighs 20%).
While focusing on your overall potential as a researcher, your creativity and level of independence will also be considered. This means that additional consideration will be made when judging your application including focus on outstanding results within a diversified career path and not only on the number of scientific publications. For candidates from an industrial background particular attention will be paid to any contributions to patents, development or inventions. Career breaks will not be penalized in the assessment procedure, i.e. your application will be evaluated only according to your merit (criteria mentioned above). Since career breaks can be valuable for your professional development (e.g. a period spent in a relevant industry), these can be considered by the reviewers as a positive point in the evaluation. Besides, career breaks due to parental leave or military service will not be penalized in the assessment procedure.
