Peer Review Approach

CHS Global Partnerships for Research & Innovation bases its funding decisions on peer review recommendations and its success relies on the research community’s participation. Peer review is the worldwide accepted standard for determining excellence in scientific research. The purpose of the Grant Review Panel (GRP) is to exercise fair and rigorous judgement through their participation in high-quality reviews of funding applications. Reviewers demonstrate this judgement through written reports which consists of a rating and explanatory comments. To view our Grant Review Panel member list, click here.

The merit of each Funding Application will be evaluated against criteria related to:

•    Relevance
•    Excellence
•    Potential for Impact
•    Feasibility
