What are the assurances for transparency in the assessment of Grant applicants and subsequent award?

The GEA is committed to assessing grant applicants transparently and ensuring that only the best applicants receive the competitive startup grants.

A key step to ensuring transparency is the limit of human interferences in both the grants application and assessment processes.
