[scisip] Comparative Assessment of Peer Review Brussels workshop report
Submitted by holbrook.james on
Those of you interested in peer review of grant proposals may find the attached report of interest. It comes out of a workshop focusing on the use of broader societal impacts criteria as part of the review process at the European Commission. There is both a historical account and some thinking about how 'impact' ought to be incorporated into Horizon 2020 (the funding scheme formerly known as FP8).
Since the US NSF is also currently rethinking the details of its merit review process, and since there is an interesting comparison between NSF's and the EC's approaches to impact,we have also included a focus on NSF's Broader Impacts Criterion.
The workshop was both a research opportunity for us (under SciSIP grant # 0830387) and an effort to use that research to help inform policy for science (in terms of informing peer review models).
