Hi everyone,

This could be interesting for those in the reserve list : I got an EF-MAT, but I just got a permanent job (up to administrative details), so I will most likely give up my spot.

I know nothing about any of those subjects, but from what you wrote, yes, you have every right to ask for reevaluation. Your English is impeccable, let alone a native language. From all we could gather, it depends to a very important degree on who you get as an evaluator, same as with publications. Of course that some projects will be appealing to anyone who reads them, but how is it possible that one project gets 90 one year and 70 another; if it's not sad one could even find a "humor" in that.
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.
Your situation seems to be even worse. I believe if the topic is simply not to the reviewers' taste, they simply invent weaknesses, which is obviously not scientific and against the rules of the call which has a bottom-up approach if we are to believe their claims. Maybe they can be honest and simply determine the topics for each year's calls, and we will know that our specific topic does not fit. Even that is more objective than simply eliminating the ideas you do not like. By the way, can you send me the link for the re-evaluation application?

Hello. guys. Do you know how long could I postpone the fellowship?
You can postpone to start at max 12 months after signing agreement

Hi!

I've signed the grant, it is so possible to postpone my starting date?
it is something reliable or it will create problems?

Thank you!

Hello guys

It was stated in the "RESERVE LIST GAP Information for Beneficiaries - PF 2021 - 04-07-2022" that:
Start Date Options
You will need to choose one of the two possible options:
1) "Fixed start date"
Selecting this option means that your project will start on a specific, pre-defined date. This date must be encoded during the GAP procedure, together with a compulsory explanation in the “Justification” box. For example, “the researcher's current contract will end on …”.
• The earliest possible fixed start date for your proposal will be 01/09/2022
• The latest possible fixed start date that can be chosen is 01/09/2023
Although the start date will be fixed in the grant agreement, this can – if necessary – be changed later on via an amendment.
