Internal Review for Award Renewal


After the applicant institution receives the consensus report with the outcome of the Interim Assessment, it will continue the implementation of the reviewed/improved action plan based on the recommendations provided by assessors and will report to the European Commission on the progress within the next 36 months.

The HRS4R process will continue in a cyclical way, with new Internal Reviews every 36 months for Award Renewal (alternating the organisation of site visits).

N.B. The institution will have access to the consensus report within approximately three to four months after the confirmation of the administrative eligibility check. In case a site visit is planned, the period may be longer.
