Evaluation and monitoring

Your project application will be reviewed according to our Network projects evaluation methodology.

1. Impact

Is the market properly addressed (i.e. size, access and risks)?

Is the value creation properly addressed (i.e. employment opportunities and environmental and societal benefits)?

What are the competitive advantages of your project (i.e. strategic importance, enhanced capabilities and visibility)?

Are your commercialisation plans clear and realistic (i.e. return on investment, geographical and sectoral impact)?

2. Excellence

What is the degree of innovation? (i.e. is the proposed product, process or service state-of-the-art? Is there sufficient technological maturity and risk)?

How is the new knowledge going to be used?

Is your project scientifically and technically challenging for consortium partners?

Is the technical achievability and risk properly addressed?

3. Quality and efficiency of implementation

What is the quality of your consortium (i.e. balance of the partnership and technological, managerial and financial capabilities of each partner)?

Is there added value through international cooperation?

Is your project management and planning realistic and clearly defined (i.e. methodology, planning approach, milestones and deliverables)?

Is your cost structure reasonable (i.e. costs and financial commitment for each consortium partner)?

4. Overall perception

Experts will list three positive and negative points to your application and finally state whether they recommend your project for public investment.

Your national funding body may carry out a further evaluation (performed by the national project coordinator and technical experts) according to national rules before allocating funds to successful applicants.
