Projects Peer Review Panel – large projects
The Projects Peer Review Panel (PPRP) is responsible for the assessment of projects that are considered to have significant scientific priority in particle physics, nuclear physics, astronomy and particle astrophysics. The Panel assess new large/complex novel projects (PPRP large projects) and smaller R&D projects (PRD - Project Research and Development).
PPRP Large Projects are major new projects such as participation in new experiments or missions, the development of new instruments or upgrades to existing detectors.

The consideration of a Statement of Interest is the first step in the STFC review of any major, new proposal.
Further information and guidance about submitting a Statement of Interest.
PPRP large projects guidance
Applicants who have submitted a successful Statement of Interest will be invited to submit a full proposal to the PPRP. Guidelines on writing a full PPRP proposal and templates are given below.
Applicants should also refer to the STFC Project Management Framework. The Framework sets out the control environment within which science projects are appraised, managed, monitored and evaluated, and contains useful advice on writing proposals and on good project management practice.
Proposals submitted to PPRP should be proportional to the size and complexity of the project, but should not exceed 40 pages including technical appendices. This page limit will be strictly enforced.
Applicants must submit their application through the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) System by 4pm by the deadline given by the PPRP Secretary.
Academic applicants must meet the normal eligibility requirements for Science and Technology Facility Council research grant funding as set out in the FEC Research Grants Handbook.
