Støtte til ny søknad til ERC Advanced Grants 2020

Tildelt: kr 0,15 mill.

Jeg har nå søkt ERC Advanced Grants to ganger. I 2018 kom jeg på reservelisten og ble rangert som nummer 225, mens 222 fikk tildelt midler. Den eneste kommentaren jeg fikk var på metode. I 2019 fikk jeg prosjektetableringsstøtte fra NFR til å forbedre søknaden og spesielt metodene. Søknaden jeg sendte i 2019 mente jeg derfor var et hakk bedre. Men med ny komite fikk jeg andre kommentarer. Her er panelets hovedkonklusjon: "The panel recognized the strong academic track record of the PI, extensive experience of working in the region and contribution to advancing knowledge in the field through ground-breaking research. They acknowledged the excellent capacity of the PI to deliver the proposed project. The panel appreciated the ambition of the proposal and its potential in addressing an important societal question, noting novel dimensions that have the potential to enhance understanding of the drivers of migration and violent conflict in Africa. The appropriate design of the research programme, selection of case studies, and sensitivity to ethical and security issues was observed and the involvement of African scientists commended. However, the panel was not fully persuaded of the scientific case for the proposed focus and approach. It considered that elements of the argument lacked precision and evidence, such that the ability to move beyond the state of the art could be compromised by insufficiently demonstrating the significance of the proposed explanations over other factors. In this respect, the panel noted that dynamics such as the differential rule of law in African states and the young profile of the population were not sufficiently engaged with in the proposal. Some aspects of the research design would also have benefited from further elaboration, notably with respect to the research team, sampling and analytical strategies and the research schedule."
