Integrating and Strengthening the European Research Area, FP6 Priority 1 Life Science, Genomics and Biotechnology for Health, Independent Observers' Report

Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

As independent observers (IOs) we attended consensus meetings between January 17 and 21, 2005 and panel meetings between February 14 and 23, 2005. As during the 2004 evaluations we also had extensive discussions with Commission officials, among them Octavi Quintana Trias, Tim Hall, Alain Vanvossel, Arnd Hoeveler, Stephane Hogan and Charles Kessler. From such discussions we had the impression that they will eventually lead to some modifications of the evaluation procedure, which we suggested. Most valuable comments came from a number of evaluators, who had been in Brussels before or who attended such meetings for the first time. As IOs we also read CRs and IARs.
In this report we shall communicate observations made during our stay in Brussels. The main thrust of our report will be directed at proposing measures to maintain the high quality of evaluation and at the same time streamlining established procedures.
