This workshop addresses young researchers from all STEM subjects / natural sciences, who want to understand the logic of peer review processes. The workshop presents different review strategies and background information from the perspective of research funders.
The participants need to prepare short [mock] applications and act as reviewers in two panel meetings. By “playing” the process of a peer review meeting (and making all the mistakes) the participants learn on the example how peer review works, about its strength and shortcomings. They profit twice: as future applicants they will be able to address their specific review audience in a much more specific way, and in their role as future reviewers they collect insights that will help them to make peer review work better.
