    What does it mean that such a meeting is held? Is this how grant applications are normally reviewed, or is it special meeting justified by particular circumstances?

    This bit

    suggests there is special emphasis.

    My wild fantasy: they will shove as much money as they can into grants, word will get around that it's easy to get grants for ME/CFS, and we will see more research. Some studies of questionable quality, others of good quality WITH high sample size.
