Appealing? Redress procedure

Post by Para-Wave » Sat Feb 20, 2021 11:05 pm

TOPIC ‘Redress procedure’ – How to qualify and common outcomes
Including using the European Ombudsman and Complaints against the Research Executive Agency and European Commission
e.g. ... 1737#_ftn3

Hi all – Did this happen to you or to someone you know?

I’m thinking of applying for Redress because one of the my Evaluation Summary Report criteria (Criterion 3 – Implementation) has only Strengths and no Weaknesses - actually says “Weaknesses None” - but did it get full marks ...

It has been awarded less than the full marks of 5.00

Has anyone had this happen to them and applied for Redress or thinking of applying?

I think this happens to a lot of people, I got 4.8 and 4.8 in excellence and impact despite "No major weaknesses" as the only weakness cited.
And I ended up in the reserve list.
I guess that in our case we covered all the points for those sections but someone else covered them better (better prose, more clear, etc..).
The reviewers have to rank a lot of proposals that are all good and worth of funding, at some point it may just be that they like some prose better than others.
I don't think that appealing will change anything.

Same here 4.8 with no weakness. They can reduce 5 into 4.8
