Summary of Independent Observer report:

The Independent Observer finds that the evaluation followed the applicable rules for the call, and that it was competently evaluated in a fair and equitable manner by the experts and continuously monitored by the Agency staff. The Independent Observer did not observe any event or activity that gave rise to specific concern that might have jeopardised the fairness of the evaluation.

The end result of the evaluation is a rank list of proposals which was agreed by all participants with 38 best ranked proposals selected for funding, within the available budget limits. All applicants will be informed shortly about the outcome of the evaluation and the grant preparation phase will start over the summer 2024 for the successful applicants.
The Independent Observer understands from interactions with the experts involved that they were generally comfortable with the process and the work schedule.


We recently informed the applicants about the evaluation results for their proposals.
