Science Fund of the Republic of Serbia is launching a Call for Expression of Interest for international research experts interested to join the Program Board and perform project evaluation for the Program for Excellent Projects of Young Researchers and Scientists in the Early Stage of Career – PROMIS 2023.

PROMIS 2023 is intended to support excellent projects of young researchers and scientists in the early stages of their careers, up to 7 years after finishing the PhD.

The program supports basic and applied research in all scientific fields. Projects within this program do not have predetermined topics.

The goal of the program is to enable young researchers to define their own research programs, form their own teams and cooperate with laboratories and research centers in Serbia and the world. Also, the goal is to strengthen the professional capacities of young PhDs, train young researchers to apply for research and development projects at the national and international level, especially in the European Union, and to support the scientific research work of the young academic community, which will have an impact and significance for social development and the economy.

Project duration is up to 24 months.

Total budget of the Program is EUR 4,000,000. The maximum budget per project is EUR 150,000.

The Science Fund has established a two-stage evaluation process for the PROMIS 2023 Program. The first stage of the evaluation is performed by peer reviewers and the second stage is performed by the Program Board. The Program Board is an independent expert body which will consist of 5 members.

English is the working language for the proposed projects, as well as project evaluations, therefore excellence in the English language is a must for Program Board Members.

During the course of the engagement, work of the Program Board will be organized remotely.

Once contracted, Program Board Members are entitled to a fee of 450 EUR/per day (for 8 working hours). The expected engagement of each Program Board Member is up to 20 working days.
