Typical comments from evaluators of EU research proposals (Corn, 2010)
a) Scientific and/or technological excellence
i) Soundness Of Concept And Quality Of Objectives

The proposal does not fit or only partially fits within the call text.

The objectives are not clear/measurable/quantified

The objectives are not objective enough/are too ambitious/unrealistic


The proposal mentions targets X and Y but why does it not specify other essential targets for their approach

Why do detailed technical objectives only come after month 6 of the project and not in the proposal ii) Progress Beyond The State Of The Art

They do not explain the state-of-the-art worldwide, only their own state-of-the- art.

They refer to an outdated state-of-the-art.

They do not explain the advantages of their solution compared to other, existing approaches.

Company X already has a similar device/process on the market why is the proposed one better

There is no clear comparison between the proposal objective and the potentially well identified) state-of-the art. iii) Quality And Effectiveness Of The ST Methodology And Associated Work Plan

The interaction between the tasks and work package is not described.

It is not clear who is doing what.

The description of methodology is very generic. How can I have confidence that they know what they are doing

They do not explain why they do it this way. There are better ways of doing the same.

They have not explained how they will solve problem X. Do they even know that it will be a problem

There is no risk analysis and contingency plans are inappropriate.
