Information for reviewers

All applications for research grants undergo scientific assessment of research quality by UK and overseas experts in the field from academia, Government or industry.

This assessment considers how applications meet the criteria for:

  • Scientific excellence
  • Strategic relevance
  • Industrial and stakeholder relevance
  • Economic and social impact
  • Timeliness and promise
  • Value for money
  • Staff training potential of the project

From January 2011, reviewers will use the Je-S system to view documents and comment on proposals.

Reviewers of applications submitted before January 2011 will continue to use the email-based review system.
