Dear colleagues,

As a leading expert in your field, I would like to invite you to serve as expert evaluator of some of the research programs funded by the Romanian Government through the National Council for Scientific Research.

The Romanian Government has taken on the mission of implementing a set of sweeping reforms of our research system, in order to enhance the competitiveness of Romanian research in the global contest for scientific excellence. A key component of this program is that publicly funded research projects must now be evaluated by a panel composed of at least 50% foreign experts.

The evaluation will be conducted 27th of July – 12th of August 2011 and the experts will receive 100 Euro per project reviewed.

Additional information about the evaluation process:

· Length of project proposals: ~ 15 pages, 12 point font, 1.5 spacing

· Estimated time commitment per project: min. 1 hour - max. 4 hours

In order to obtain more information about the calls for proposals, plese following link: http://uefiscdi.gov.ro/articole/2404/2011-Calls.html

If you decide to support us please following link: http://www.excellenceinresearch.ro

We fully understand that this is a holiday period but the evaluation process is crucial for the success of the Romanian reform. Also, the annual budget allocated to research activities for 2012 year depends on the funding decisions taken in 2011.

I believe that your input would greatly help the Romanian research community reach its full potential.

In grateful anticipation of your kind response,

Yours sincerely,
Prof. Alexandru Babes
President of the Romanian National Council for Scientific Research
