The key considerations in assessing the applications are the following:
- Community building on the national and cross-national level, and reaching to a European audience
- Particular emphasis is given to novel network initiatives, especially in countries underrepresented in EASST (Southern and Eastern Europe)
- Novel academic questions, new collaborations, and reaching beyond academia.
- Innovative initiatives in academia (e.g., open access publishing) and public engagement in science and technology.
- Open activities accessible for a wide array of participants and reaching a broad audience.
- Feasibility and value-for-money. We particularly welcome initiatives with limited access to other potential sources of funding.
A sub-group of EASST Council assesses the applications and makes a recommendation to the elected Council members who make the final decision. This sub-group comprises:
- Sarah Rose Bieszczad, Centre for Science and Technology Studies, (CWTS), Leiden University, Netherlands
- Michela Cozza, Organization and Management Department, Mälardalen University, Sweden
- Richard Tutton, Science and Technology Studies Unit, University of York, UK
- Filip Vostal, Centre for Science, Technology and Society Studies (CSTSS), Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic.
