How selection committees operate?

Following a transparent operating model, the selection process is carried out by international peer reviewers and scientific council.

  • The external peer reviewers evaluate the proposals with appropriate experience and expertise and write reports.
    This is a rigorous process that assesses the scientific quality of research applications.
  • The scientific council's mission is to evaluate projects proposals, taking into account the outside opinions. It then selects projects to be funded.
