Independent Review Committee
Proposals will be reviewed by an external multidisciplinary, Independent Review Committee (IRC) that will be composed of renowned, US-based experts in the field. Proposals are reviewed based on areas of interest, originality, scientific merit, and feasibility. The IRC will decide on prioritization for funding.
Potential conflicts of interest will be actively managed. IRC members are not allowed to submit proposals and are not to participate in assessing proposals from their own institution or when a potential for conflict of interest otherwise exists.
