ROUND SEVEN DECISIONS

Author:

Article Type:
News

Article Number: 2

ABSTRACT A detailed listing and analysis is provided of which Round 7 proposals have been approved.

Based on advise from the Technical Review Panel (TRP), the Board divided eligible Round 7 proposals into five Categories, as follows:

  • Category 1: Approved proposals requiring no or minor clarifications, which need to be provided within 8 weeks and then given a final approval by the TRP Chair and/or Vice-Chair.
  • Category 2: Proposals that are provisionally approved subject to the required clarifications being provided within a limited timeframe (6 weeks for the applicant to provide an initial detailed response to the TRP queries, and a further 3 months to obtain the final TRP approval should further clarifications be requested). The primary reviewer and secondary reviewer as well as TRP Chair and /or Vice-Chair need to give final approval.
  • Category 2B: Proposals that are treated as those in Category 2, but are regarded as being relatively weak, on grounds of technical merit and/or issues of feasibility and likelihood of effective implementation.
  • Category 3: Proposals not approved in their present form, though applicants are encouraged to resubmit in some future Round following major revision.
  • Category 4: Proposals that are rejected, with applicants not encouraged to resubmit in any similar form.

The number of Round 7 grants per Category was as follows:
