The Royal Society Te Apārangi is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from experienced individuals wishing to assist with the assessment of proposals submitted to Catalyst: Leaders and Catalyst: Seeding.
Reviewers assist in the evaluation of proposals across all disciplines, and are required to have experience in one or more of the following categories:
- a high level of professional expertise in a relevant field of science, technology or the humanities, and accompanying capacity to assess applications from a broad variety of research disciplines
- understanding the key attributes that underpin high-performing international research collaborations
- understanding the Government’s strategic priorities for New Zealand research.
The Catalyst Fund was established to support activities that initiate, develop and foster collaborations leveraging international science and innovation for New Zealand’s benefit.
It has four funding streams:
- Catalyst: Influence
- Catalyst: Leaders
- Catalyst: Seeding
- Catalyst: Strategic
Some fund programmes are administered by the Health Research Council and the Royal Society of New Zealand on behalf of the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment.
Prospective reviewers for the programmes administered by the Royal Society of New Zealand are asked to complete the brief Expression of Interest Form available online and submit to the Society along with their CVs.
EOIs must be received no later than 5pm, Thursday 29 March 2018 to be considered in support of the current funding round.
The Society says it aims to ensure that each reviewer will review a maximum of 25 proposals, and that the review activity will not take more than one day.
More information on the Catalyst Fund Reviewer EOI can be found here.
