The Comparative Assessment of Peer Review (CAPR) was a four year project (2008 - 2012) that examined the peer review process at six science agencies worldwide: NSF, NIH, and NOAA in the United States, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Reseach Council of Canada (NSERC), the European Commission 7th Framework Programme, and the Dutch Technology Foundation (STW). Funded by the NSF SciSIP program, CAPR was a project of the Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity at the University of North Texas.
