Some background

ESF’s high-level competencies in peer review management are the result of our robust history in science management activities, for our own research instruments (eg. EUROCORES, Research Networking Prgrammes and Exploratory Workshops) but also from managing FP7 projects and other specific contracts with major European stakeholders.

ESF's expertise in peer review has also been enhanced through common actions, dialogues and joint policy initiatives such as the ESF Member Organisation Fora on Peer Review which resulted in the Peer Review Guidebook, which is today used throughout Europe and internationally as the leading framework for peer review.

With our pool of highly regarded and experienced reviewers (Community of Experts) which is continuously enhanced and updated, ESF has the capacity to provide scientific peer review support to institutes, establishments or organisations implementing competitive calls.
