How applications are evaluated

  • All applications, Letters of Intent and Full Project Proposals, are evaluated by the FOREUM Scientific Committee. When considering applications, the committee will apply both FOREUM’s high quality standards as well as an application’s fit with the scope and goals described in the specific call announcement.
  • Full project proposals are subject to peer review by at least two external reviewers who are experts in the field.
  • Patients are involved in the process by means of a lay summary of the project applications to be provided by the applicants.
  • In consideration of all of the above, the FOREUM Scientific Committee makes its funding recommendation to the FOREUM Executive Committee and Board of Trustees for a final decision.
