The Review and Decision Process
EDCTP aims to complete the entire review process for all grant schemes within five months of the deadline for submission of proposals. This process is depicted in the diagram below:
Proposal preparation and submission
Proposal review and approval
All eligible proposals undergo a review procedure that may involve peer review by independent External Reviewers and/or a Scientific Review Committee (SRC). The reviewers and SRC members are selected on the basis of their expertise, track record and standing in the field. Depending on the grant scheme, applicants may be given the opportunity to respond to the External Reviewers' comments and their responses will be taken into consideration by the SRC. The SRC assesses the applications in competition and draws up a ranked list of proposals, together with a summary of its funding recommendations. The SRC recommendations are presented to the EDCTP General Assembly which makes the final decision on funding, approving all grants awarded by EDCTP.
