The URBACT Programme is looking for members for the External Assessment Panel for the evaluation of eligible applications received through the call for Innovation Transfer Networks.
The External Assessment Panel for this call shall be composed by up to 6 members recruited through a call for applicants. The External Assessment Panel Chair will be appointed among the selected members. The panel shall also be balanced in terms of gender and geographical coverage.
The key tasks of the members of the External Assessment Panel for this ITN call are structured around the assessment of applications including the following activities:
- Kick off meeting with the URBACT Joint Secretariat to define the methodology for the assessment process, develop a shared understanding of the assessment criteria and define a detailed calendar for the delivery of the expected outputs – this meeting will take place in Paris on 10 April 2024.
- Assessment and scoring of eligible applications by individual members of the External Assessment Panel. Each application shall be assessed by two different assessors, allowing for a cross-analysis and assessment of each proposal. The assessment will be done remotely and will result in the production, by each assessor, of an Individual Assessment Sheet including detailed comments/ recommendations – the independent work will be carried out between 10-26 April 2024.
- Consensus meeting with all members of the External Assessment Panel and the URBACT Joint Secretariat to share the individual assessments and consolidate a final Network Assessment Sheet for all eligible applications – this meeting will take place on 29-30 April 2024 in Paris.
Note: the dates for meetings and assessment can be slightly adjusted considering the number of applications received and other justified reasons.
