Proposal submission, peer review process, funding decision
Research consortia had to consist of 3 - 5 research groups from at least three NEURON partner countries participating in this call. Consortia including partners from countries that are to date underrepresented in this funding scheme (Latvia, Hungary, Slovakia, and Turkey) could increase the total number of partners to six. The two-step process required at first the submission of short pre-proposals describing the research idea. From these a short list was selected and the respective consortia were invited to submit full proposals (see also below).
Both pre- and full proposals had to be submitted electronically by the coordinator of the consortium. Proposal templates and guidelines were provided by the Joint Call Secretariat in order to support the applicants in terms of the proposal format. The Joint Call Secretariat is hosted by the French National Research Agency, ANR, France.
In order to properly cover all aspects of the broad topic, 28 experts were recruited from NEURON partner countries and beyond. Each pre-proposal was assessed in writing by three evaluators. The assessments were based on the criteria listed in the call text and consisted of a global score and additional comments. The projects were ranked according to the reviewer’s scores. Based on this ranking list, the funding organisations selected 38 projects whose coordinators were invited by the Joint Call Secretariat to submit full proposals. In total 15 scientific, 10 lay, and 7 ethics reviewers gave written evaluation on the full proposals. On their basis 15 scientific, 5 of the lay reviewers and an ethics spokesperson discussed these full proposals thoroughly in an hybrid meeting and provided funding recommendations and a ranking list.
Funding decision and granting process
The funding decision was taken by the funding organisations participating in the joint call for proposals. Starting with the best proposal and following the ranking list, as many proposals were selected for funding considering the national budgets available.
As a result of this step, the top 14 projects could be funded. The projects comprise 59 research groups (Principal Investigators) from 14 partner countries. The total funding volume amounts to about 11.9 m€ for three years.
Funding organisations supporting this call
22 funding agencies from 18 different countries contributed with a budget of 15.7 Mio€ to the funding of the project of the JTC 2022 “Cerebrovascular Diseases”.
