Call for Research Data Alliance Europe grants evaluators open

19 July 2018

RDA Europe 4.0 is seeking external evaluators for proposals to be funded by the project. The Research Data Alliance (RDA) is an international member-based organisation focused on the development of infrastructure and community activities to reduce the social and technical barriers to data sharing and re-use and to promote the acceleration of data driven innovation and discovery worldwide. As the European plug-in to RDA, RDA Europe 4.0 supports growing the community of research data experts and practitioners by offering grants RDA Europe National Nodes, Early Career Researchers and Experts, Ambassadors, and RDA output-adoption.

 

Call for grant evaluators

RDA Europe 4.0 is seeking external evaluators to support the review process of  applications received in response to the series of Open Calls for grants dedicated to RDA Europe National Nodes, Early Career Researchers and Experts, Ambassadors, and RDA output-adoption.

 

Do you have proven experience as an evaluator, have been involved in RDA and have a strong demonstrated expertise in an area relevant to RDA's mission? If so, we strongly encourage you to sign-up and join our group of Evaluators.

 

For each Open Call, based on their individual expertise, a number of evaluators will be selected from the group and assigned to review eligible proposals. All proposals will be reviewed by at least three evaluators to ensure impartiality.  Evaluators will work independently, in a personal capacity and not on behalf of an organisation. They will be selected based on their field of expertise and proven experience in similar review activities while ensuring that a balance of competences, geographic coverage and gender are factored in accordingly. Evaluators will be remunerated depending on the number of proposals assigned and evaluated. Compensation is calculated at an average rate of 400€ per day.

 

Make sure you sign-up in time!

The project aims to have an extended group of up to 30 external evaluators. The call  is continuous, meaning that it opens July 2018 and will remain open for applications according to the project’s needs. Applicants are encouraged to submit as soon as possible for early consideration.
