IFAB Call for Reviewers 2023

We are seeking qualified reviewers to evaluate project proposals for our initiative focused on bridging research and industrial innovation in the areas of data analytics, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, cloud computing, edge computing, or quantum technologies. As a reviewer, you will play a crucial role in assessing the merit and feasibility of project submissions within the following thematic areas:

Earth: Reviewers in this thematic area will evaluate project proposals related to climate change mitigation, renewable and alternative energy production, greenhouse gas emissions reduction, and energy efficiency in industry and manufacturing.

Healthcare and Medicine: Reviewers in this thematic area will assess project proposals that address IT and computer-aided design platforms for care management flows, drug design and repurposing, precision medicine methodologies, and genomics and genetics data processing. Familiarity with computational medicine and in silico modeling is advantageous.

Complex Societal Systems: Reviewers in this thematic area will evaluate project proposals focused on developing digital twins for complex systems. This includes urban systems, mobility and transportation networks, value chains in sectors such as agri-food, logistics/transport, manufacturing, finance, and insurance, as well as workforce health and safety.

New Materials: Reviewers in this thematic area will assess project proposals centered around innovative material development and design. Expertise in environmental sustainability, reduction of environmental pollution, energy storage, circular economy principles, and biotech for manufacturing waste reuse is desirable.

As a reviewer, your responsibilities will include evaluating project proposals based on their clarity, scientific soundness, methodology, expected outcomes, and potential impact. We are seeking reviewers with expertise in one or more of the aforementioned thematic areas, along with a strong background in relevant research and industrial innovation.

If you are interested in contributing to this exciting initiative, please submit your application as a reviewer by October 16th, 2023. To apply, please provide your name, affiliation, contact information, areas of expertise, and a brief overview of your relevant experience, by filling in this form.

Selected reviewers will be notified by the end of October and will receive a detailed review guide and access to the project proposals for evaluation. Since we highly appreciate your commitment to ensuring the highest quality of the projects, selected reviewers will receive a symbolic monetary compensation for their time and contribution to the proposal review process.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to contribute to advancing the collaboration between research, industry, and society: your expertise and insights will be invaluable in selecting impactful projects for funding and implementation.

We look forward to reviewing your application and collaborating with you in this important endeavor.
