The evaluation process will start in early June 2019 with a total duration of 7 weeks.

  • First stage: 10th June 2019 – 28th June 2019

INNOWWIDE uses a two-step procedure to evaluate submitted application. During the first stage, two independent experts remotely evaluate the proposals following the INNOWWIDE criteria.

Proposals with equal scores close to the funding limit (as defined by the ranking list) proceed to the Review panel composed of two experts tasked with determining the final ranking position of these applications. Experts for the Review panel are selected from the pool of independent experts eligible for the first stage.

The experts for evaluating VAPs will be selected from EUREKA’s Expert database.
