Key features of this service

Catalyze’s Reviews & Resubmissions service includes:

  • Writing advice to achieve convincing language that is directed at (non-)technical reviewing experts.
  • Better specification of the scientific/technological content and the business case
  • Implementing key reviewing elements that fit the requirements of the specific call/program to achieve a higher scoring.
  • If relevant, processing of evaluation results from previous submissions
  • Suggestions for the inclusion of additional information and/or explanatory figures

Through applying these improvements, we generate a new version of your grant application.


Case: Review service for Intravacc


Intravacc (Utrecht) is uniquely active in the field of vaccines, including extensive experience in enteroviral vaccine development and the technology and expertise to bring vaccine candidates to phase I-II clinical studies. Catalyze provided a review service to Intravacc in support of their application to a NIH call for advanced development of vaccine candidates to treat EVD68-associated acute flaccid myelitis. They were awarded a $9.4 million NIH contract. 

“Because we knew the complex nature of NIH contracts, we decided early to involve Catalyze. I think the most beneficial part was at the beginning. To submit your proposal, there was a 200-page guide describing everything that you need to include. For us to oversee the complete document while also writing the full proposal would have been very difficult. What Catalyze did was make the template, with all the parts laid out that we needed to fill in the text. That was really helpful to us and allowed us to start efficiently.” – Dr. Dinja Oosterhoff, Program Director at Intravacc
