TRUSTCHAIN aims to set up an External Poll of Evaluators (EPE) to support the review process of the proposals received from the first TRUSTCHAIN open call – Decentralised Digital Identity.
The EPE gathers a set of recognized independent experts highly knowledgeable on different NGI relevant topics and application domains at the intersection between the technical field ( e.g Software Engineering, Network Security, Semantic Web, Cryptography, Blockchain, Digital Twin, Blockchain Security, Blockchain Protocol, Digital Identity, Verifiable Credentials, Decentralised Reputation System), the Social sciences and Humanities (e.g Social Innovation, not-for-profit sector, Social Entrepreneurship, public goods) as well as any others including economics, environment, art, design, which can contribute to NGI TRUSTCHAIN relevant vision.
Their selection is based on an open process to ensure transparent and consistent evaluation of the applications.
We are looking for experts with experience in evaluating EU funded projects and a proven track record in the technical and social science areas corresponding to the NGI TRUSTCHAIN Open Call 1 objectives:
Need more information regarding the open call? Please visit the open call dedicated webpage: https://trustchain.ngi.eu/open-call-1/
Services will be provided remotely and will involve evaluation of the applications received, participation in remote consensus meetings as well as in the panel meeting to establish a ranking list of the evaluated proposals. All evaluators will be required to sign a non-conflict of interest declaration and a contract with the TRUSTCHAIN project coordinator, before being accepted to evaluate a specific application.
Evaluators will be reimbursed for their time and effort based on the number of proposals evaluated, with each proposal corresponding to a value of €50, considering 1 hour to evaluate each proposal.
Please note that this expression of interest to participate in the TRUSTCHAIN Open Call 1 – “Decentralised Digital Identity” evaluation as an external expert is NOT binding and does NOT constitute any commitment to the TRUSTCHAIN project.
The selection of the evaluators to support TRUSTCHAIN in the evaluation of the Open Call will be taken at a later stage, since it depends on the number of received proposals, their origin, the domain that they target as well as the origin of the potential evaluators, their affiliations, their expertise and the balance between various criteria (e.g. gender, background, affiliation type, age, expertise etc.). Furthermore, it is mandatory to frequently change experts that support in the evaluations of proposals.
