Timeline of TruBlo evaluation process for Open Call #1

Evaluation process

  • 19.03.2021: Deadline for proposals for the open call
  • 30.03 – 19.4.2021: Each proposal is reviewed by two independent evaluators. The project took extra care in the selection process, e.g. by randomizing the assignments of the evaluators. Further the project ensured that evaluators will review a project from their own country, as an additional measure
  • 20.04.2021: Consensus meeting. This means that the evaluation results for each proposal from two evaluators are compared. A final score is applied to each proposal.
  • 21.04.2021 – 27.04.2021: The creators of the top graded proposals are contacted, in order to create a final ranking.
  • 28.04.2021 – 30.04.2021: Final results of open call #1 are announced

The selected projects – 10 for open call #1 – will be contacted directly.
