The funding applications are evaluated by a selection committee, which consists of:
- BMZ representatives
- DEval representatives
- international RIE experts
All applications are examined regarding the research ethics, appropriateness of the requested funds and the handling of potential risks or obstacles. If there are gross deficiencies, the applications need to be revised or the funds can be reduced. If the requirements cannot be adequately met, the application is rejected for funding.
If the requirements are met, applications are evaluated based on three criteria:
- Relevance to development policy
- Quality of the project
- Usefulness and partner orientation
Further information on the selection process will be published here.
