Project Review Meetings
EWG will host project review meetings for project sponsors. The review meetings provide an opportunity for project sponsors to meet withEWG staff to discuss various components of the proposed project, including project concepts, eligibility, project schedule, etc. Sponsorswill be able to sign up for a 30-minute time slot, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:10 p.m., on the following days: January 6, January 13, January 20, and January 27. This meeting is intended for project sponsors that have at the very least a specific project concept to present for review. Sponsors are required to submit a Project Review Meetings Information Form or draft application before the workshop so the panelists can gain some knowledge of the projects they will be reviewing. Each sponsor may bring no more than two projects to discuss in a half-hour time slot. Attendance at this meeting is encouraged, but not required to submit a project application.
