Approval of Rolling Continuation Channel Wave 8 Proposals
The Board approves, subject to paragraph 2 below, the Rolling Continuation Channel proposals recommended for funding by the Technical Review Panel (TRP) as ‘Category 2’ which are listed in Annex 1 to the Report of the TRP and the Secretariat on Funding Recommendation for Wave 8 Rolling Continuation Channel Proposals (the “Wave 8 RCC Report”). The Board approves funding for up to three years for each proposal (indicated as “Total 3 Years” in Annex 1 to the Wave 8 RCC Report). The Board’s approval is made with the clear understanding that the grant amounts requested are upper ceilings subject to TRP clarifications and grant negotiations rather than final approved grant amounts. For further clarity, this decision is subject to the revised Comprehensive Funding Policy approved at the Twentieth Board meeting.
The applicants whose proposals are recommended for funding as ‘Category 2’ shall:
provide an initial detailed written response to the requested TRP clarifications and adjustments by no later than four weeks after notification in writing by the Secretariat to the applicant of the Board’s decision; and
conclude the TRP clarifications process, as indicated by the written approval of the Chair and Vice Chair of the TRP, not later than two months from the Secretariat’s receipt of the applicant’s initial detailed response to the issues raised for clarification and/or adjustment.
The Board declines to approve for funding those proposals categorized by the TRP as ‘Category 3A’ as indicated in Annex 1 to the Wave 8 RCC Report, however such applicants are strongly encouraged to resubmit a revised proposal, taking into account the issues raised by the TRP, for consideration in the final resubmission wave of Rolling Continuation Channel review.
The Board declines to approve for funding proposals categorized by the TRP as ‘Category 3B’ as indicated in Annex 1 to the Wave 8 RCC Report, however such applicants are encouraged to resubmit the proposal through the Rounds-Based Channel following major revision.
