Regional Peer Review Database: Enhancing capacities in the Black Sea Region

27. Sep 2015

Internal preparatory meeting for joint use of the existing EVAL-INCO database of reviewers

The facilitation of international peer-reviewing is an essential contribution of BSH project to responsible research and innovation as stipulated by the EC’s STI internationalisation strategic communication (2012). A regionally accessible peer-review database is an important tool to enhance the capacity to conduct evaluations of scientific proposals in all scientific areas; to enhance the transparency of the evaluation processes conducted by experts; and to respond more effectively and flexibly to the growing workload, particularly in cases where very specialized, unexpected and urgent evaluations may be required.

For this purpose PT-DLRs database EVAL-INCO, which had been used for previous ERA-Net Calls (BS ERA.Net, SEE-ERA.NET (/Plus) and ERA-NET RUS (/Plus)), will be further developed to meet the demands for peer-reviews in the Black Sea region.

This meeting is organised to define the concept for a flexible use of the EVAL-INCO peer reviewer database for the purposes of the Black Sea region and will include representatives from research funding agencies of the non-EU Black Sea countries including experts from research agencies from Turkey and Germany. 

Follow up activities are a train-the-trainers workshop planned in Chisinau, Moldova in 2016. - Information will be available on the project website. At midterm of BLACK SEA HORIZON the regional module of the database should be operative including valid entries of at least 1000 peer reviewers.

This meeting is a BLACK SEA HORIZON internal meeting and upon invitation only.
