Technical Review Service

Technical review provides feedback on grant proposals from a scientific perspective, ensuring that ideas have been presented clearly and are well organized, resulting in a proposal that is targeted to grant reviewers. Geneva’s Technical Review Team reviews proposals for common merit review pitfalls and provides a constructive critique of the proposal content. The team will also provide feedback on responsiveness to funding agency priorities, and work with researchers at any experience level to strengthen the proposal.
