The Expert Database is an online database on which experts from different specialised disciplines can register in order to make themselves available for national and transnational valuations of scientific draft projects.
More than 5,000 experts are registered on the online database.

We have successfully used this tool for call management many times. This makes the whole expert system with electronic allocation of experts to draft projects (so-called matching) easy to handle and standardised.
The keyword matching of experts is based on a three-level classification pattern (taxonomy). This enables us to ensure targeted matching of drafts and expert. The results of the matching then form the basis of the funding decision.

Our specialised contacts ensure that our experts’ expertise is monitored.
We use targeted advertising measures such as “Call for experts”, presentations and mailings to expand our expert database.
We observe current data protection provisions and use data for the specific purpose of a call evaluation and only with the expert’s approval.
