Handbook on Evaluation and Selection of Proposals for Implementation in the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development Concerning, Information and Communication Technologies

Funded under: FP7

Abstract

FET-Open Continuous Submission Call
This handbook specifies in detail how the general procedures for evaluation and selection of proposals in the 7th Framework programme set out in the Commission's document: "Rules for submission of proposals, and the related evaluation, selection and award procedures" (Quality, Transparency, Equality of treatment, Impartiality, Efficiency and Speed) are implemented in the evaluation and selection of proposals submitted under the ICT FET-Open call.
The evaluation of proposals is one of the most critical elements within FP7. The large numbers of proposals received in each call, the uncertainty as to which topics will be addressed by the proposals, and the responsibility of the Commission services to provide to proposers the result of the evaluation of their proposals in the shortest possible time, means that the process for the receipt and allocation of proposals to evaluators must be clearly defined to be as efficient as possible.
To ensure the equal treatment of all proposals, the procedure of the evaluation itself must also be as standardised as possible. It must lead in a transparent and efficient way to establishing an unambiguous priority list.
This constitutes a primary input to the selection decision.
The procedures here described apply to the IST FET-Open continuous submission call for proposals (FP7-ICT-2007-C). Compared with the procedures applicable to the ICT fixed deadline calls, some adaptations are made in the detail of the procedure in order to accommodate the submission of the proposal in two stages, the evaluation per batch and the possibility of remote evaluation by evaluators, which takes place under that call.
FET-Open works with a continuous submission scheme. For their evaluation and selection, proposals are grouped in so called batches, determined by their time of submission and a corresponding cut-off date, specified in the work programme (section implementation of calls).
