Tomorrow's answers start today: FP7 Cooperation Health Evaluation FP7 - HEALTH - 2007-A, May-June 2007, Independent Observers' Report

Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

The structures and procedures of the evaluation exercise are of high quality. The general impression and the detailed empirical evidence that the independent observers were able to get was that the evaluation approach implemented by the European Commission is very well designed and managed. The combination of remote evaluation and consensus meeting ensures an excellent framework for achieving the best possible results.
All the experts that have been interviewed unanimously emphasized and acknowledged that the approach taken by the European Commission for evaluating proposals is of the highest standard. The approach compares excellently with approaches applied by other prestigious national or international granting agencies. It can be taken as an example of best practice that could act as a model also for many national research funding organisations.
