Information on blind evaluation in Horizon Europe

The "Blind Evaluation" is a pilot for the anonymous appraisal of short applications (stage 1) in the two-stage application process. Part B of the short application must not contain any information that give information on the identity of the applicant. Otherwise the application is considered inadmissible.
This anonymous application assessment is used in all two-stage application procedures in the 2023/2024 calls for proposals in Clusters 1 Health. Since only single-stage tenders are planned for 2023 in the health cluster, this applies to all two-stage tenders for 2024.
The EU Commission has now updated the application form for the short application and added information on "blind evaluation". The updated application form can be found on the Funding & Tenders Portal.
