    Then sign up for this seminar on October 27th 2015 and get inspired and connected!

    The purpose of the seminar is to prepare researchers and companies to take part in cross-disciplinary H2020 applications.

    The seminar is open to all. The morning session focuses mainly on research within Social Sciences and Humanities. In the afternoon, the seminar is open to researchers and companies from all disciplines and furthermore includes the possibility to participate in the pre-registered matchmaking session.

    The journal "Research Policy" recently pre-published a paper by Eugene Day of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Day has created a mathematical simulation of peer review of grant proposals, concluding that this process is very sensitive to any ind of bias, statistically speaking. 

    You can read a summary of the study on the ScienceInsider web pages, where you will also find a link to download the paper. 

    If you work in pre-award, this is almost required reading...
