Alf Game and Helen Meade from the BBSRC are coming over to Kent next Wednesday (30 June) to run a mock peer review. This is something that the EPSRC runs regularly, but it's new territory for the BBSRC. A mock panel is an opportunity to experience what it is like in a real peer review panel. Participants are given a range of previously submitted applications to assess, and have to introduce, discuss and prioritise them. At the end you will find out which of the applications were successful in reality. It’s a really useful exercise to help understand the issues and restrictions the real panel operates under.
Numbers are restricted, and places are given on a first come first served basis. Lunch will be available from 12pm, and Alf will kick off the meeting with a brief overview off the committee process before getting down to the business of reviewing applications. If you would like to take part please drop me a line.
