Collective Research evaluation process
About 200 experts from industry and research, organized in six expert groups, are involved in the collective research evaluation process. The expert groups are divided into the following sections:
- Process Engineering and Energy Technology
- Business Administration and Organization
- Construction and Production
- Measurement and Information Systems
If an expert group decides in favour of a project proposal, the AiF recommends it to the ministry for funding. After the ministry has given its approval, the AiF sees to the provision of funds to the research associations.
