How to proceed

Your assessment of the nominee plays an important role in the review process.

Please write your expert review using the list of questions for expert reviews (PDF) and answer all the questions in detail, preferably in English (alternatively in German), and in the given order. Then please upload this document to a protected area; the nominating party will send you the corresponding link to this area in an email. Your statement will, of course, be treated as confidential.

Please note

Without your expert review, the application is incomplete and cannot be submitted. We therefore recommend that you upload your review as soon as possible after being notified by the nominating party.
