- IPODI Selection Process
- © IPODI
After the call deadline, those applications that have passed the eligibility check will enter the selection process. The selection is conducted in accordance with the European Charter for Researchers .
- Every application is evaluated by two international reviewers, who are distinguished experts in the same area of research as the proposals they assess. The external reviewers are asked to evaluate the proposal with regard to scientific and personal qualification, quality of the proposal, career perspectives and mentoring perspectives.
- During its first meeting, the IPODI selection committee  compiles a pre-final ranking list on the basis of the results of the external reviews. In order to counter possible differences in review “cultures” between the different participating disciplines, IPODI follows the best practice approach of the MSCA and compiles separate ranking lists for the eight major areas of research. An equal proportion of candidates for each area is pre-selected for an interview, based on the applications numbers for the eight research areas. In order to guarantee the scientific excellence of all pre-selected candidates, only candidates with a score of at least 80% (4 out of 5 points) can be invited.
- During its second meeting, the IPODI selection committee conducts personal interviews with the prospective candidates. The cooperating professor of TU Berlin is also invited to the interview.
- After the interviews, the selection committee compiles a final ranking list for funding recommendation on the basis of the results of the external reviews and the results of the interviews.
Applicants will be able to monitor the status of their application in the IPODI application portal during each stage of the selection process. They will be informed of the outcome of the selection committee meetings within five working days.
For further information on the selection criteria, please consult the evaluation sheet which is also used by our external peer-reviewers and by the selection committee.
