Content–related appraisal

Projects that met formal criteria, are subject to content – related appraisal within maximum of 90 days of the close of a formal appraisal. The assessment is performed by the appraisal experts in the form of a peer review, in principle by international ones. However, in case the competence is available, the review is done by Polish and/or Swiss experts. The peer review experts are designated by the Executing Agency based on national and international peer databases and by Joint Selection Committee members. The appraisal is conducted in a score system, on the basis of provisions defined in the appraisal criteria, adopted by the Joint Selection Committee.

The appraisal experts make a peer review of the application and recommend particular Projects for the financing. This is to be meant that the peer review done by experts verifies scientific quality of Projects (Current scientific interest and impact of the project. Experience and past performance of the applicants. Novelty of the proposed research approach and research questions) and their conformity with the overall Objective of the PSRP and the Swiss – Polish Cooperation Programme. The following elements will namely be evaluated:

  • Relevance – is the topic of the research relevant for the specific field?
  • Scientific quality – does the design of the research meet current standards with regard to methodology and time frame? Is the research set-up targeted towards the achievement of its objectives?
  • Project partners – do the involved institutions have relevant experience in the specific field of research? Which strengths do they bring to the research project?
  • Sustainability  what are the chances that a stable, long-term partnership will arise from the project?

Management/Budget: The research plan is realistic, the project is feasible. The Project proposal includes a clearly defined research objective, research results and indicators to track the progress towards objectives. The project budget is adequate. Does the budget correspond to other, comparable projects? Do the institutions have access to other financing instruments? Can an efficient utilisation of the budget with regard to the object of research be assumed?

Based on conducted appraisal in the form of peer reviews, there is elaborated a list of Projects recommended for the financing, with scores and ranking. Recommendations should include proper justification. Recommended Projects along with accompanying documentation is submitted by the Executing Agency to the Joint Selection Committee. Members of the Joint Selection Committee shall carry out additional appraisal of the Joint Research Projects (in the form of an A-B-C classification), based on the peer review appraisal. The final grant decision on Projects is made by the Joint Selection Committee, based on the list of ranked Project applications and above-mentioned classifications made by the members of Joint Selection Committee.

On its basis, the Executing Agency prepares Grant Agreements and disbursement plans and signs them with the Beneficiaries.

List of Grant Agreements shall be sent by the Executing Agency to the NCU and published on the website of the Executing Agency.

The Applicants cannot appeal against the decision of a content-related character.
