External monitoring of the FP6 IST thematic priority - 4th call independent monitoring panel

Funded under: FP6-IST


This is the report of the Monitoring Panel for the 5th Call in the IST Priority Theme of the 6th Framework Programme, held in Brussels and Luxembourg during October and November 2005. The evaluation processes used in the 6th Framework Programme are now wellestablished and managed very professionally. Evaluations have been monitored several times before: the Monitoring Panels of Calls 2 and 4 of FP6 have presented about 80 recommendations, from which the Commission has approved about 50 - the rest being impossible or against the presently accepted rules of the Commission. In particular, the Commission has introduced extensive training for the staff - in particular for the POs and Heads of Units, who are mainly in charge of conducting the meetings and establishing consensus among the evaluators.
