Activities and Workload

This role would include reviewing proposals submitted under the scheme. We are expecting a high volume of applications to this call so it is likely that each peer reviewer will receive approximately 5-6 proposals to assess. We will ask reviewers to provide comments relating to specific criteria and score each proposal between 1-10. Full peer review guidance will be provided to guide reviewers through the process.


We expect to send proposals to reviewers for peer review in mid/late October 2021 and they will have 4 weeks to review their allocation.

Conflicts of Interest

Please highlight in your reply if you intend to be involved in any proposals being submitted to this call, or if you have any recent collaborators who you know will be applying.

Please note that the closing date for applications has not yet passed (closes 30th September 2021). As such we do not have full details of the applications that will be submitted at this time.
