Foreign experts


Evaluation of proposals submitted to the NCN is divided into two stages.

STAGE ONE

In the first stage, the proposals are evaluated in terms of content only by Polish experts grouped in expert teams appointed for each call. During a panel meeting each proposal undergoes preliminary evaluation and is either rejected or accepted for the second stage of evaluation, based on the results of peer review performed earlier by two members of the expert meeting.

STAGE TWO

Proposals accepted in the first phase undergo further evaluation by external experts, both Polish and foreign. Based on those evaluations the expert panels make final decisions on financing chosen projects. At the second stage of evaluation, most of the accepted proposals will be directed to foreign experts who are chosen following the recommendation of the members of expert teams. Their participation in the process of reviewing proposals is particularly important for the development of Polish science and adds perspective to evaluated proposals.
