The submitted project descriptions are fundamental to the RIE funding programme. They will be published after the submission deadline: Overview of development cooperation projects that are eligible for RIE.
Based on the project descriptions, a matchmaking process will be conducted. During this process, the interested scientific institutions get in contact with the development cooperation projects. The aim is to clarify any open questions and to assess whether cooperation within the RIE research projects is promising for the scientific and development organisations. The scientists then work with the development cooperation projects to develop a research design.
After that, the scientific institutions can apply for funding. Applications must include a letter of support from the respective development cooperation project.
Before your project description is published or made available to the scientific institutions, DEval will review the project description. If any information relevant for RIE design is missing, DEval will contact you and ask for clarification.
