EVALUATION PROCESS AND CRITERIA

After the proposals are submitted, the access provider concerned together with FIXLAB Welcome Desk will verify the formal compliance with the EU regulations, undertaking a prioritizing of the applications based on available expertise, ongoing potential collaboration projects, available time etc. as well the necessity/feasibility for the use of the facility.
All applications will thereafter be transferred to Peer Review evaluating the scientific content of the project and ranking the proposals. The final decision will be reported to the FIXLAB Welcome Desk who will notify the applicant and the access provider of the Peer Review conclusion. The access provider will make a final decision concerning the extent of access (instruments, days, period, IPR agreement, etc.).
The selection is thus primarily based on the scientific quality; the originality of the scientific proposal, as well as the level of expertise to set up and conduct the proposed experiment and to analyze samples available in the User and host groups. The applications should aim to increase the scientific output (qualitatively and quantitatively), optimize the use of local expertise of ongoing research activities and facilities, and foster lasting international science cooperation.
