Evaluation criteria are divided into sub-criteria:
|Evaluation of CV – Phase II||Evaluation of research proposal – Phase II||Interview – Phase III|
|Research experience||Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach||Potential of acquiring skills in terms of career development||Complementarity between research proposal and IBEC’s research expertise and interests||Presentation and communication skills|
|Research results||Clarity of research methodology||Ability to attract collaborative partners and create a long-term network (both with academia/industry)||Appropriateness of the workplan (regarding calendar, milestones, etc) to achieve the proposal objectives||Leadership skills|
|Interdisciplinary approach||Originality of the project||Contribution to European excellence and competitiveness through transfer of knowledge|
|Independent thinking and other skills||Relevance of the proposal in relation to state of the art|
Evaluation scores will be awarded for each of the four criteria, but not for the sub-criteria. However, sub-criteria will be considered by evaluators in the assessment of each criterion.
