FLOW CHART OF ODIN'S SECOND CALL ROUND

STEP 1:

Due to the resurgence of COVID-19, the matchmaking process will take place online. Both companies and AU researchers can post ideas online and comment on each other's ideas.

STEP 2: DEC 2020 - FEB 2021

The ODIN secretariat will host virtual pitch sessions, where companies pitch their research needs and ideas (December 2020) and AU researchers their submitted ideas (January-February 2021).

The scientific facilitator will be happy to assist in the matchmaking between participants.

STEP 3: SUGGESTED 1 MAR 2021

In the second call round, we will not have a strict deadline for submitting ideas. It is still important that all applications received for review are based on openly shared ideas.

Thus, we recommend that ideas are posted before 1 March 2021 to provide enough time for the online matchmaking process, but this is not a requirement.


STEP 4:

All parties should (in some way) contribute to the writing of the application. It is important that the applicants use the templates found on our matchmaking platform.

STEP 5: 12 MAY 2021

Applications for ODIN's second call round must be submitted no later than 12 May 2021.


STEP 6: JUNE 2021

ODIN's Project Review Committee decides which applications to fully review based on the 1-page abstract. The selected full-length applications are then reviewed by both the PRC and an international Peer Review Panel. 

Based on qualitative discussions and a scoring scheme, the PRC nominates applications for funding to the Steering Group.

STEP 7: AUG 2021

The Steering Group reviews the nominated projects and decides which applicants should be offered a grant (and under which conditions). 

STEP 8: SEP 2021

As soon as the projects have been selected, the ODIN secretariat sends out decision letters.
