Info for Reviewers

These pages are intended for experts who are reviewing applications and evaluations submitted to the DNRF and for those who want to know more about the foundation’s assessment and evaluation procedures.

  • Assessing new applications
  • Evaluating existing activities

You can find more information on the selection criteria and the composition of the review panel in the menu to the left. You can also find relevant documents for assessment and evaluation within a specific funding instrument.
