Redress Procedure

All candidates have a right to a redress procedure if they feel that there has been a shortcoming in the way their proposal was evaluated, or if they believe that the results of the eligibility checks are incorrect.  Applications that do not meet the eligibility criteria will be rejected, indeed applicants will receive an email stating the reason for rejection and information on the redressing procedure.

Eligibility criteria for each proposal are checked by the Management Committee before the evaluation begins. Proposals which do not fulfil eligibility criteria are not included in the evaluation. The redress procedure is concerned with how the application was handled in the evaluation and eligibility-checking process. It is not an automatic re-evaluation; the judgement of appropriately qualified experts is not called into question.

The redress requests must be addressed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , they will be examined by the MINDED Management Committee and international qualified experts.

The committee's role is to ensure a coherent interpretation of such requests, and equal treatment of all applicants.

Requests must:

  • be related to the evaluation process, or eligibility checks ;
  • completed using the form available on the MINDED website, including a clear description of the grounds for complaint;
  • be received within the time limit specified, i.e. 7 days from the eligibility verdict.

All requests for redress will be treated in confidence.
