The criterion is inadequately addressed, or there are serious inherent weaknesses. 2 Fair. Proposal broadly addresses the criterion, but there are significant weaknesses. 3 Good. Proposal addresses the criterion well, but a number of shortcomings are present. 4 Very Good. Proposal addresses the criterion very well, but a small number of shortcomings are present. 5 Excellent. Proposal successfully addresses all relevant aspects of the criterion. Any shortcomings are minor. Application form reflects evaluation criteria Each criterion scored between 0 and 5 Decimal points can be awarded Excellence Evaluation Criteria Quality, innovative aspects and credibility of the research (including inter/multidisciplinary aspects) Clarity and quality of transfer of knowledge/training for the development of the researcher in light of the research objectives Quality of the supervision and the hosting arrangements Capacity of the researcher to reach and reenforce a position of professional maturity in research 4 - CV of the Experienced Researcher 24

25 Aims of the Research Project: Make it clear why the proposed project is novel, ground breaking or cutting edge in the area; What will be its contribution and how will it advance the area; How will this in turn open up career and collaboration opportunities for the researcher. Make it accessible: Evaluators will be experts, but maybe not down to the level of detail you are; Bring the project to life and ensure it is easy to follow use clear language and include diagrams, images, tables if appropriate. Two-way interaction between researcher and host(s): What new knowledge and skills will the researcher develop; What existing knowledge and skills will the researcher bring to the host(s). Training-through-research: The research project makes up the focus of the Fellowship, but should be framed in the context of training for the researcher; In particular, in terms of multi/interdisciplinary expertise, intersectoral experience and transferable skills; For Global Fellowships, identify how the skills/knowledge gained during the outgoing phase will be transferred back. Secondments! 25

26 Qualifications and experience of the supervisor(s) (both for GF): Include evidence that the supervisor is suitably qualified/experienced to ensure the success of the Fellowship; For example, participation in projects, publications, patents, relevant results, international collaborations and experience supervising (no. postdocs mentored); If other colleagues will provide mentoring, describe it. Hosting arrangements: Measures to ensure the successful integration of the Fellow and transfer of knowledge/skills; Is there an institutional Research Development Strategy describe it; Consider what the Career Development Plan would look like. European Charter for Research Researchers should be able to show that they have an excellent track record given their career status: E.g. Publications, patents, conference papers, chapters, monographs. Highlight all relevant experiences, including teaching, supervision, or work with industry/non-academic partners. The evaluators need to be convinced that the researcher is right for the Fellowship project and that they will also develop and grow as a result of the training it offers. 26

27 You CV can be used for reference to help with space, but bring out and detail major relevant achievements. The proposal is the opportunity to convince evaluators and the Commission and sell the researcher! Demonstrate they have capacity for independent thinking and leadership; Explain how this will have an enormous positive impact on the researcher s career. Strengths The methodological approaches are state of the art and original. Their application is clearly described and very well justified for each objective. The relevant training objectives benefitting the further development of an independent research career have been articulated in detail. The potential of the applicant to acquire new knowledge and skills through the fellowship has been very well identified and justified. 27

28 Weaknesses The research objectives are not described in sufficient detail. The provisions for mentoring at the outgoing host are treated superficially. The match between the researcher s profile and the proposed work is not substantial. Impact Enhancing research- and innovation-related human resources, skills and working conditions to realise the potential of individuals and provide new career perspectives Effectiveness of proposed measures for communication and dissemination 28

29 Detail the expected impact of the Fellowship on the researchers career: Experience of a new country, culture and way of thinking; Development of new skills which may be transferable; New experiences in new sectors through secondments, etc.; What are the researcher s goals and how will the Fellowship contribute during and after the project. Be precise as to how this will be achieved through the project. What will be the impact of the project and its outcomes on European society: How might it benefit EU citizens; How will it influence the area and science base; Lead to a breakthrough; Develop new techniques; Establish new networks across sectors (non-academic sector). What could be the potential economic impact; Does it fit well with EU strategies and policies e.g. Europe 2020, aims of Horizon 2020; To what extent is it innovative e.g. could it lead to a product or service. 29

30 ID(1 Where possible, knowledge from the Project should: Advance research; Foster innovation; Promote the research profession to the public. Think about different audiences Therefore, need to include details on: Communication and public engagement strategy of the action; Dissemination of the research results; Exploitation of results and intellectual property rights. Highlight when these will take place in the Gantt Chart! European Charter for Research Marie Curie Outreach Guidance Strengths The fellowship is likely to have an excellent impact on the career prospects of the researcher. excellent potential for a long-term collaboration between the outgoing and return host. The proposed project is likely to have a substantial contribution to the European excellence and European competitiveness. 30

31 Slide 59 ID(1 Ian Devine (UKRO), 24/04/2015

32 Weaknesses The project has limited socio-economic value. The impact of the scientific outputs has not been sufficiently demonstrated. There is not sufficient evidence in the proposal of any planned outreach activities for the return phase. Implementation Overall coherence and effectiveness of the work plan, including appropriateness of the allocation of tasks and resources Appropriateness of the management structure and procedures, including quality management and risk management Appropriateness of the institutional environment (infrastructure) Competences, experience and complementarity of participating organisations and institutional commitment 31

33 The project Work Plan should be clear and realistic and show how the desired impacts will be achieved; Include a Gantt Chart as given in application example using time elapsed by month to show: Work Packages titles (for EF there should be at least 1 WP); List of major deliverables; List of major milestones; Secondments (if applicable). Work Packages can be included for all activities, i.e. research, management, training. Describe the project organisation and management structure: Financial management structure may even be a transferable skill to be developed by Fellow; What progress monitoring will be in place. What are the potential risks that could jeopardise the project: What level of contingency planning will be in place. 32

34 Describe the main tasks and commitment of the beneficiary and partners (if appropriate); Describe the infrastructure, logistics, facilities that will be available to the researcher and necessary to ensure the successful implementation of the project. Describe the active contribution of the beneficiary to the proposed research and training activities; Why is it an appropriate place to conduct the Fellowship; Do they have experience in the research field/hosting Fellows; Demonstrate commitment by providing the researcher with that needed to successfully complete the Fellowship. Global Fellowships; Similar description for the outgoing TC host; TC Partners need to provide a letter of commitment (Part B, section 7) details of what to include in guide for applicants. NB: Each participant is described in Section 5. This specific information should not be repeated here! 33

35 Strengths The administrative arrangements and support for the hosting of the applicant are sufficiently outlined. The workplan of the project is comprehensively described. A contingency plan is included. The available infrastructure in the host institution is well described and corresponds to the needs set out for the execution of the project. Weaknesses The goals to help assess the progress of the project are insufficiently explained. Practical administrative arrangements, and support for the hosting of the fellow (outgoing and return host) are not described in sufficient detail. No contingency or risk assessment plans are provided. 34

36 Operational capacity of the organisations Use well tables in Section 5 of Part B Profile of key staff, description of key infrastructure or technical equipment, all partner organisations contributing towards the proposed work Slightly different information for Beneficiary and Partner, but 1 page each. Ethics Issues Self-assessment in Part A and strategy in Section 6 of Part B Outside the 10-page limit provide detailed strategy Crucial for all research domains need to identify any potential ethical issues and describe they will be addressed All proposals considered for funding subject to Ethics Review Read the Ethics Self-Assessment Guidelines ethics-self-assess_en.pdf Don t underestimate this section (gender experts in all Evaluation Panels) Relate to EU policies on Gender Equality cross-cutting priority in Horizon 2020 Equal opportunities (among researchers and decisionmakers/supervisors) Gender dimension in the research content (e.g. subjects or end-users) Gender dimension in training activities where appropriate 35
