At the Celtic-Plus Proposers Day that took place September 22 in Istanbul, national innovation agency Tubitak announced an important simplification of their national evaluation process. The Turkish national evaluation of new incoming proposals will be based on the labelled Celtic-Plus Project Proposal document that was previously evaluated by industry experts. This will avoid time consuming and costly translation of the document into Turkish by the proposers. Tubitak’s announcement was positively received by the participants of the Proposers Day. Many of them considered that this is an important simplification of the evaluation process.
