While applicants can choose a preferred access site, (UCPH, UU, VIB-UGent, IP, FGCZ, CNIO, CRG, KTH, IMIC, CEITEC, TUM, IEO) the selection criteria will be based on the type of (unique) services provided by a facility and their proven expertise with such services. Reviewers may also give feedback as to which platforms are more suitable. If an applicant is unsure of which infrastructure best suits the project, a host infrastructure will be selected for the applicant based on project requirements.
In cases where the user has listed a preferred access site, it is the editor’s discretion to redirect a project to an alternative access site. This can occur in cases where the editor feels that the technology required for the project is better suited to the proteomics technology at another access site, for logistic purposes or at the request of the reviewer. This decision will always be discussed with the user and a check list will be discussed.
The principal investigator will be informed of the outcome of their proposal. In such cases where the proposal is rejected, an improved version of the proposal can be re-submitted in the next call. Evaluation reports will be provided for all projects.
