our advisors

Grant applications are assessed by independent advisory committees. The advisory committees are composed of experts in various fields.

Each grant scheme works with a pool of advisors who participate in the committee meetings as and when needed. The expertise that is called for is determined on the basis of the applications. For open calls, ad hoc advisory committees are set up. Within the Experiment Grant Scheme, at least two fund employees are assessed internally. Within the Experiment Grant Scheme applications are assessed internally by at least two Fund officers due to the continuous scheme.

Advisory Committees are constituted in such a manner that members can operate independently and critically. In the composition of the committee, attention is paid to avoid any conflict of interest arising. New advisors are selected by the external selection committee advisors. The advisory committees work according to the Advisory Committee Procedure.

See below for the composition of the various advisory committees and their additional tasks and working methods.
