- Whether the EAE contributes to achieve OsloMet’s strategic goals, as laid out in Strategy 2024.
- Whether the EAE contributes to strengthening OsloMet’s competitiveness and profile.
Novelty: The extent to which:
- the proposed research addresses important research challenges that will have great impact on international research themes and/or research methods.
- the objectives are ambitious and beyond the state-of-the-art (e.g. novel concepts and approaches, development of novel methodology or development between or across disciplines).
- the proposed research has the potential to achieve ground-breaking results.
Solidity: The extent to which:
- the outlined scientific approach is feasible.
- the proposed research methodologies are appropriate to achieve the scientific goals of the EAE.
- the combination of scientific elements put forward in the proposal is crucial to address the scope and complexity of the research question (s).
The extent to which:
- the EAE will contribute to the development of an internationally leading research environment in Norway.
- the EAE will create an environment that will attract and train research talents beyond what could be attained in the individual research groups
- the EAE will create an environment that will attract and train students beyond what could be attained in the individual research groups (state type of students, briefly describe how)
- the EAE will contribute to the SDGs (describe which, including key targets and indicators)
EAE leader and principal investigators/group leaders
EAE leader, the extent to which:
- has demonstrated the ability to conduct ground-breaking research.
- has the required scientific expertise and capacity to successfully lead the EAE.
- has demonstrated sound leadership in the training and advancement of young scientist.
Group leaders, for which CVs are submitted, the extent to which:
- have demonstrated the ability to conduct ground-breaking research.
- have the required scientific expertise and capacity to successfully execute their part of the EAEs activity.
- Does at least one of the group leaders, in addition to the EAE leader, have an accomplished track record?
EAE organization, the extent to which:
- the proposal goes beyond what the individual group leaders could achieve alone.
- the group successfully demonstrates in the proposal that it brings together the elements – such as skills, knowledge, experience, expertise, disciplines, methods, approaches, teams – necessary to address the proposed research of the EAE.
- the physical organization of the EAE is optimal for the scientific collaboration and a fertile student environment
- If the group consisting of the EAE leader and the group leaders is characterized by gender imbalance, are the plans to support development of research talents of the under-represented gender towards qualification for senior-level positions appropriate?
- The EAE represent OsloMet representative research areas
- Strategic plans, vision and ability to follow through; demonstrated through applications where the environment defines themes, give grounds for their ambitions and render visible how they will achieve excellence in research.
Overall assessment of the evaluators
Overall assessment of the evaluation based on the criteria Excellence, Impact and Implementation. Each element will be assessed on a scale from 1-7, where 7 is best.
Scoring according to:
There will be one external recruited committee (3-4 members) with experience of SFF or other larger applications. Preferred competence in health, technology and social sciences.
Members of OsloMets R&D Committee (vice deans for research, SVA, SPS, vice rector and representative from R&D, central EU team) will also evaluate the proposals. Their impartiality for each proposal must be described.
If two or more applications are rated equal and thus competing for funding, the R&D Committee may interview the applicants before making the final ranking.
Results of the call will be no later than week 2 in November 2020.
