Two-year pilot phase for cross-format examination of draft proposals

in the Research Unit, Research Training Group and Collaborative Research Centre programmes

A slightly modified procedure will apply for draft proposals received on or after 1 January 2018 which are primarily assigned to one of the four review boards (FK) or expert forums below:

  • History (FK 102)
  • Physics (FK 307 – 311)
  • Basic Research in Biology and Medicine (FK 201)
  • Production Technology (FK 401)

As part of a pilot project for the cross-format comparison of draft proposals in the Research Unit, Research Training Group and Collaborative Research Centre programmes, all draft proposals which are primarily assigned to these review boards will be evaluated there first following the consultation and a decision will then be made in the Senate Committee. In these cases, both a member of the Senate Committee representing a different subject area and a member of the review board will participate in the consultation.
