The funded projects will be evaluated on clearly established selection criteria. An External Advisory Group (EAG) has already been engaged to support with its competent contribution the relevance of the research topics prioritisation. An External Pool of Evaluators (EPE) is being recruited to ensure independence and fairness of the proposals selection process.
