Reviewer Application Form

Thank you for your interest in reviewing applications received for the Cancer Innovation Challenge's funding competition for Innovative Data Science Solutions to Improve Cancer Care and Outcomes in Scotland

To ensure that all applications are assessed by a range of relevant expertise, we need to assemble a wide pool of assessors across various backgrounds.

Each application to the funding competition received will be assessed by 5 reviewers, with each of the following perspectives:

  • Clinical
  • Data handling
  • Data science (knowledge of data science techniques and methodology and applications)
  • Business development
  • Citizen

Each reviewer will be reviewing approximately 4 applications each and the entire process is online. The review period will be from 17 November 2017 – 5 January 2018 and full guidance will be given. Each application will take approximately 1-2hrs to review. Each reviewer will need to sign a confidentiality agreement.
