Thanks for the support, my disappointment is not about not getting the grant but about the impunity of the evaluators in making such comments. As you said, it is even tragicomic to get 4.6 from excellence one year and to get 3.4 the next without a change other than addressing the gender part better which they noted. I think making the previous year’s evaluation available, and paying more money for the evaluators’ time, so that they do not simply skim through, but actually read what is in front of them, and to bring some limitations to the evaluators as well for misconduct might improve the system in the long run.
Hi there, I feel you. Last year I scored 88.6, got a seal of excellence and agreed with the weaknesses found by the evaluators. This year I addressed the issues, improved the application, changed hosts choosing people there were more relevant to the project and the best in the field. Guess what? Got 58.4. Can you believe that? One year my project gets a seal of excellence and the next one I am bellow threshold and prevented to apply again. I honestly think it is scandalous and I already asked for a reevaluation, but I am expecting nothing out of it. The only explanation is that, last year they liked the project, this year for some reason they hated it. And based in these unprofessional and non-objective criteria they decide the life of other people. I have no words.
Please, could you tell me how did you ask for re-evaluation? I am in the same situation.
Thanks!
Just go to the link you will find in the letter of rejection. In your follow up session you have this letter and the evaluation documents.

After the disappointment, need to resume the search!
Can someone please give me a list of postdoc fellowships in Europe? It doesn't matter in which country.
Thank you very much for your reply

I want to know the number of applicants for HE-MACA-PF-2021 in each country. Do you know where to check the nationality of applicants? Does anyone know who can send it to me? lzxxuan@163.com
Thank you very much.

Guys, will anyone participate in this webinar - https://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/latest ... ope-update and be kind enough to share what was said - about the MSCA fellowships, in particular? I'll try to participate as well, but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it.
