Hello all, the two proposals ATSI and EURENDA have both been rejected, despite good evaluations (especially the first one). The evaluation reports are available in the respective project folders on Drive. We are still awaiting the evaluation of 3CN.
Focusing here on EURENDA (we already discussed ATSI), the parts of the proposal where Edgeryders was involved seem to have elicited mostly good comments:
The disciplines involved include political and social sciences, philosophy, economics, IT, anthropology, and territorial planning. Various researchers and practitioners with participation and deliberation expertise focus on climate issues and are active at various scales, which demonstrates interdisciplinarity. Public engagement, including stakeholders’ knowledge and inclusion of marginalised societal groups is an intrinsic part of the proposal.
Open science and open access are addressed adequately. A data management plan covers knowledge management, the required standards, as well as quality assurance and IPR, which is good.
In the end, this project had identity problems:
It is not sufficiently clear whether the EURENDA’s ‘network of networks’ focuses on the GD or improving democracy.
and there was nothing we could do, because we had no control over the vision.
Oh well. Back to the drawing board.
