NRF Calls

Call for Applications for Evaluation and Rating - 2017

The Call for Applications for Evaluation and Rating – 2017 is open and you are requested to pay special attention to the procedure that will be followed by the UFS. Also see the attached documents below in this regard (UFS Process for NRF Rating).

Applications must be completed online on the NRF’s Online submission system https://nrfsubmission.nrf.ac.za/NrfMkII/, and applicants must ensure that their CV is updated/completed before creating an application.

The internal deadline for applications (new and re-evaluations) to be submitted online is Monday 14 November 2016; no late applications will be considered.

All applications will be reviewed by an experienced rating panel - consisting of internal and external evaluators - and feedback from this process will be provided soon after the panel meeting on 5 December 2016.

One-on-one discussions with the panel members will take place on 6 December 2016.

The final NRF submission date for applications is 23:59 on 15 February 2017; it would, however, be advisable to submit no later than 14 February 2017 to avoid an overloaded NRF system.

From 24-28 October 2016, Prof Terry Robinson will be available to discuss applications in progress. Please contact Eleanor van der Westhuizen (x7077) to schedule an appointment.
