Individual research projects, large research initiatives and key areas of ESRC policy and research strategy are reviewed by the Evaluation Committee. The backbone of evaluation is peer review and almost all of our evaluation work involves selecting, briefing, supporting and in other ways dealing with peer reviewers.
