Have you been asked to provide an expert review for a researcher applying for a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship? If so, your role will be central to the success of the application. Please take note of the following to achieve maximum support for the application and ensure that it can be processed as efficiently as possible:

  • Please refer to the list of questions for expert reviews and be sure to answer all the questions.
  • Your review is an important part of the candidate’s application documents. If your review is missing, the application is considered incomplete and cannot be submitted.
