    About This Project

    Scientific grant review consists of experts assessing the approach and impact of a given proposal. The process is thus an implicit exercise in forecasting – reviewers are betting on which projects are likely to accomplish their goals and produce valuable outcomes.

    Explicit and grounded forecasts could produce better funding decisions, but this approach has yet to be widely tested. We aim to launch a pilot forecasting challenge to build understanding of forecasting in scientific review.
