Edctp2 Model Grant Agreement

Q: How are proposals evaluated? A: EDCTP relies on independent experts to evaluate proposals. Experts are outside the EDCTP and work in their personal capacity in carrying out their assessment(s) and not as representatives of an organisation or scientific community. Experts are selected from the EDCTP expert database, which includes experts from all over the world. Detailed details of the evaluation procedure are described in the calls for proposals in the “Evaluation criteria, evaluation and thresholds” section and in the EDCTP2 grant manual. Individuals can apply as evaluators via the EDCTP website. A list of experts used for evaluation is published annually. Q: What will be the impact of the end of the EDCTP2 programme on the duration of the projects? A: Our goal is to end EDCTP 2 activities on or before December 31, 2024. We recommend that applicants take this into account when planning their projects. Q: Is it possible that my rejected proposal will be reconsidered because the reviewers missed the point? A: EDCTP selects independent evaluators with a high level of scientific and technical expertise in the areas appropriate to the call. The majority of appeals to the EDCTP involve a rebuttal procedure in the full phase of the application. The rebuttal procedure should allow applicants to identify and comment on any factual errors or misunderstandings made by the evaluators. Once evaluated, it is not possible to have your application reconsidered by different evaluators. You can lodge an appeal (see EDCTP2 Authorisation Manual) if you consider that your application has not been assessed by EDCTP in accordance with the published procedure.

Q: My institution`s overhead is 7%, but the system automatically adds 25% overheads. Can I change the overhead? A: The additional cost of 25% is an indirect fixed cost that applies to the eligible costs of the grant. . . .
