Evaluation of applications

Evaluation procedures

Eligible funding applications are sent to the Fonds' scientific advisory board (Conseil scientifique), which will assign them to a thematic category based on the disciplinary focus of the research projects. The scientific advisory board will then appoint as many thematic assessment committees (Comité d'évaluation thématique (CET)) as necessary, attributing a limited number of applications to each one.

Evaluation by thematic assessment committees (CET):

The CETs are made up of at least three experts who possess the skills and expertise required to assess all of the applications they are assigned. The CET members confirm to the program administrator that they have the expertise to review the different files in the committee. The CETs must evaluate the quality of the applications based on five program criteria. Members may call upon other experts to complete their assessments and determine the scientific merit of an application as accurately as possible. CET members and the external experts with whom the CETs may consult are chosen from the lists of experts submitted by the principal investigators with their funding applications. A web research with keywords may also be done in various search engines.   

CET members must determine the applications for which 1) funding should definitely be granted; 2) funding should be granted if financially possible; and 3) funding should not be granted. The CET assessments are then sent to multidisciplinary assessment committees (Comités d'évaluation multidisciplinaires (CEM)), which must evaluate the budget estimates of the teams for which funding is recommended by the various CETs and determine a level of funding for operations and equipment.

The appended evaluation grid is the list of criteria and indicators used by committee members. For each criterion, candidates are graded from A to D (A is the highest rating) based on the statements that best describe their situation. If need be, the committees may use gradations (A-,B+,B-, C+, C-, D+, D-).

Once all of the applications have been assessed, the letter grades are converted to numerical values as follows:

A  =  4

A- =  3.67

 

B+  =  3.33

B   =   3.0

B-  =   2.67

C+ =  2.33

C   =  2.0

C-  =  1.67

D+  =  1.33

D    =  1.0

D-   =  0.67

 

These numerical values are used to assign an overall percentage grade to each funding application and to rank the applications analysed by the thematic assessment committee (CET) in order of merit.

Evaluation by multidisciplinary assessment committees (CEM):

CEM members produce a final ranking of applications. Each of the four CEMs oversees some ten specialized thematic assessment committees (CETs). The mandate of the CEMs is to analyze and rate the three top-ranked applications in the various CETs. To do this, CEM members assign each application one of the following grades: A (excellent), B (very good) or C (satisfactory) to obtain a consensus on the final ranking. The level of funding for successful applications is determined based on the rank assigned by their committee and according to available appropriations. 

The Fonds Program administrator is responsible for ensuring that the committees and the various players consulted comply with evaluation criteria and procedures and with the rules of ethics in effect. The Program Administrator works with the members of the thematic committees to select the external referees.

Integrity of the evaluation process

The Agency board members are not involved in the scientific evaluation of funding applications, and at no time may researchers, students or institutional authorities make contact with the evaluation committee chairperson or members. The Agencies have the right to withdraw an application from competition if there is any attempt to lobby the committee or sway the evaluation process.

Every person recruited to sit on an evaluation committee must comply with standard rules of confidentiality regarding the application packages, committee makeup, deliberations and recommendations. The evaluation committee chairperson, members and outside experts are required to disclose any conflicts of interest and must sign a written statement in this regard.


8.

Announcement of results

CEM recommendations are submitted to the Board of directors of the FRQNT who makes the funding decisions.

The decisions of the Board of Directors of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies are final and cannot be appealed.

Grant results are announced at the end of April 2017. The decisions of the Board of Directors of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies are sent to the institutions and candidates concerned. For any information on competition results, the candidate must contact the research office of his institution or visit the Fonds Web site.

The Fonds receives annual appropriations from the Québec government to fund its grant programs. It then undertakes annual commitments, conditional on the availability of funds.
