Projects are evaluated by three REPAR members or by the plenary committees appointed by the Scientific Council and usually headed by a Scientific Council member. The members evaluate the following four criteria: relevance, networking, scientific aspect and the quality of the knowledge transfer plan. The sum of the four dimensions gives an overall rating. Too low a rating on the scientific aspect will lead to rejection of the application. This same rating is used to break a tie between two applications when necessary.
Relevance: The application authors are encouraged to carefully read the instructions for each program to ensure that the objectives and methodology of their projects are consistent with the program they choose.
National and international networking: Evaluation of networking is based on criteria related to the diversity and complementarity of disciplines or research methods used by the authors and implemented to carry out clinical research, structural activities and/or development of a technological platform. The authors’ affiliation with various research centers will also be evaluated. Thus, networking will be evaluated according to the number of disciplines and centers involved in the project and in the complementary roles and contributions of each applicant. It is therefore essential to describe the specific role of each applicant and specify the degree of affiliation with the center designated by the researcher.
Scientific merit is evaluated according to the criteria established by the FRQS.
Only researchers and clinicians who are REPAR members may submit a request to the program of activities. Non-member researchers wishing to apply must complete an application form on the REPAR website before January 16, 2012. REGARDLESS OF THE PROGRAM, A RESEARCHER OR CLINICIAN MAY SUBMIT ONLY ONE APPLICATION AS PRINCIPAL RESEARCHER FOR ANY ONE CLOSING DATE. HOWEVER, IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE A SIMULATANEOUS APPLICATION TO PROGRAM 3.4 (INTEGRATION OF POSTDOCTORAL CANDIDATES).
Projects supported by REPAR should be conducted within the set period, normally 18 months after notification of funding. At the end of the set period, a scientific report as well as a financial report must be submitted on REPAR’s website (Member Forms section). It is possible to request an extension for the report due date by completing the available form in the Member Forms section (“Application for Extension” form). The requested extension period may be three months, six months or one year. This last period is generally reserved for exceptional cases. The lead researcher will be notified within a period of up to one month concerning REPAR’s decision on the request for extension. No new funds will be granted to a lead researcher who has not submitted a previous scientific report or having more than one REPAR project extended for six months or more.
Applications must be completed on the REPAR website by December 19, 2016, at 4 p.m. at the latest (WITH CERTAIN EXCEPTIONS) for the following programs: 1.1, 3.4, 4.5, and a hard copy for program 4.2. Some programs or competitions have a specific submission date. Please see theme details. A completed paper copy must be forwarded to REPAR’s Coordination office along with applicants’ signatures and CVs. The application must be postmarked no later than January 15th at 4 pm.
An application (see the specific number of pages in the description for each program) must present the following elements in a single text, not including the budget or bibliographical references:
