Project evaluation

Situation

The allocation of internal project funds – whether for the support of research or teaching projects – often follows procedures that are not very standardized and that require a large amount of manual tasks and administrative effort. Committee members spend a lot of time evaluating and rating project proposals and identifying the best projects is challenging. Even with formal evaluation criteria in place, the process is often perceived as lacking transparency.

Solution

The Selectus project evaluation tool makes it easy to submit project applications online. If required, expert opinions can be obtained which are automatically added to the applications.

The Rating and review tools offer many possibilities to ensure efficient, transparent and independent evaluations: Formal evaluation criteria can be defined to help structure the evaluation process. The visibility of the evaluations can be controlled – if, for example, the evaluations of the other commission members are only visible after the evaluation phase, mutual influence is minimized. The optional review discussion allows for exchanging opinions between the members of the evaluation committee. Summary review statistics and spider diagrams help analyze the assessments. The final ABC rating immediately highlights the best projects.

Selectus helps you identify the most promising project proposals in a structured, efficient and fair manner.
