Hello, I have been following the forum for months and it has provided some needed support during the months of waiting. First of all, congratulations to everybody who received the funding, all the best with your projects! My case is the following: I applied to the CAR panel but apparently, my application did not comply with the eligibility criteria and it was transferred to the standard panel. I noticed this by chance, I was not notified prior to the publication of the results. Judging by the cutoff scores, I would have received the funding if I had remained in the CAR panel. I am wondering whether I should ask for a review of the eligibility check. On one hand, I want to try. On the other, I know it's not worth it and nothing will change. :) I guess my question is does anybody have direct experience with the appeal process? Or have you heard about anyone who was succcessful with reviews of eligibility? Thanks in advance!
I dont have experience first hand but i know someone who appealed, were working in industry and somehow this got taken up as academic and she was transferred to standard like you. Not sure if you have similar situation?

Yes, that's a good point, I was not specific. I am not in industry, but I am not in academia either. I work for an NGO. This is why I applied to the CAR panel. Did your acquaintance receive a positive reply or is she still waiting?
