Expert Registration

The PRACE Peer Review Team is looking for Experts!

The PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) Research Infrastructure provides access to the most performing supercomputers in Europe to high level researchers and scientists. Time on PRACE Tier-0 systems is allocated via Calls for Proposals and an open peer review process involving high level independent experts from very diverse (and often small) scientific communities. As a strict non conflict of interest policy is applied, we need to continuously enlarge our expert base and your profile is very interesting for us.

We kindly invite you to register as a PRACE expert by filling-out the form attached below.

There are two Calls for Proposals for Project Access per year. Scientific excellence is the basis of proposals assessment. The peer review process is organised as follows:

  • Remote evaluation (online review): Experts acting as reviewers will be entitled to a fee of € 150 in the form of a lump sum for each proposal duly reviewed.
  • Prioritisation panel (face to face meeting): Experts acting as panellists will be entitled to a fee of €400 per participation plus travel expenses.

If you are selected as a reviewer, an appointment letter from PRACE will inform you of the proposal(s) assigned to you. You will be able to access the proposal(s) via the dedicated PRACE Peer Review Portal. The review report must be filled-in online within 21 working days.

If you are selected as a panellist, the appointment letter will inform you when and where the prioritisation panel meeting will take place (most likely in Brussels). Panellists are usually experts who did not participate in the remote evaluation phase.

In both cases, you will be asked to inform us, by return mail, of:

  • your availability during the requested period; and
  • your ability/inability to perform the work assigned to you, depending on possible conflicts of interests and/or your expertise
