A Declaration of Interest (DoI) form should be completed by research grant applicants and ad hoc peer reviewers of research grant applications. An annual DoI should be completed by members of standing selection committees, and staff members of the RFO. The DoI should capture any financial, professional or other interest that might be seen to influence a decision or to be affected by the outcome of a decision. In addition, an RFO should state clearly that it does not accept any internal and external interference in the selection of grant applications, on its committee members, peer reviewers and staff, for example by political or commercial parties. A RIPP should also explain how it will prevent and sanction such interference.
