Decisions on first stage of September 2019 call

The decisions on applications submitted in the September 2019 call will be made in two stages. The two-stage decision procedure applies to the following funding schemes: Academy Projects, Academy Research Fellows, Postdoctoral Researchers and Clinical Researchers.

The aim of this phased decision-making is to speed up the application processing times in cases where the peer review indicates that the application will not be funded. This allows applicants more time to search for alternative funding opportunities.

At the first decision stage, the Academy’s research councils, at their discretion, reject applications that have received rating 1–4 in the review. In the case of Clinical Researcher funding, the first-stage decision is taken on applications with rating 1–3. Those applicants who receive a negative funding decision will also receive a review report on their application.

Applications with rating 5–6 continue to the next stage and will be decided on later (see table below).

The research councils make the funding decisions based on the review reports, the application ranking, the Academy’s science policy objectives and their own policies. The research councils have the right to make positive or negative funding decisions regardless of the panels’ rankings. The justifications for the funding decision are included in the decision notification.

The table showing the decision dates includes two dates for each funding opportunity: the first and second decision stage. Applicants receive an email notification of the funding decision after either the first or the second stage of decision-making.
