EARTO shares answer to EC consultations on Horizon evaluations
On 26 July 2022, EARTO (the European Association of Research and Technology Organisations) published its feedback to the Commission's online consultation on the Horizon 2020 ex-post evaluation and the Horizon Europe interim evaluation. The feedback is based on a collection of first experiences of EARTO members of Horizon Europe. In the paper, EARTO points out positively that there has not been any drastic reduction of success rates in the first calls of Horizon Europe. EARTO criticises that the final version of the Annotated Model Grant Agreement is still missing. Other points mentioned in the paper are e.g. the poor quality of Evaluation Summary Reports and the instability of the RD&I Budget in the Multi-Annual Financial Framework.
