The evaluation and assignment of iStart projects will take place in two steps:

All submissions must pass a critical evaluation made by an internal IBBT board, assisted by at least 1 external expert. In a second step, the best projects are invited to come and present their project to IBBT and at least 1 external expert with experience in the relevant domain. It is possible that projects will not be kept in both evaluation rounds. This means the call is very competitive!
