Changes to EPSRC Peer Review Process

EPSRC have introduced a slight change to the peer review process that is intended to focus discussion at panel meetings. In the past panel members have had to 'pre-score' proposals, based on the reviewers' comments. However, this was a bit of a blunt tool, and there was often disagreement between panellists as to the good or bad elements of a proposals. With the new system panellists will have to pre-score each element of the proposal, using the same headings as the reviewers, namely:

  • quality
  • impact
  • applicants
  • resources and management.
Quality, EPSRC assure us, will trump all. Their announcement of the changes is available here.
