The interim evaluation of Horizon 2020, the report by the Lamy Group, and other stakeholder feedback, noted that the current system for evaluating proposals is in general appreciated and one of the reasons for widely acknowledged successful implementation of Horizon 2020. With a view of maintaining and further developing a modern, world-class system, and identifying further simplifications where possible, the study assessed the performance of the Horizon 2020 proposal submission and evaluation process, including by taking into account international practices.
