The Commission is looking to expand its database with experts from agricultural sciences and related fields in order to ensure that the best and most innovative projects are funded.
In addition to researchers and academics, the Commission is aiming to substantially increase the number of specialists from agricultural and forestry sectors.
Particular interest is on the evaluators having experience in multi-actor projects (involving farmers, advisors, businesses, NGOs, etc.) where scientific and practical knowledge are combined.
Interested candidates are invited to file their application online as soon as possible in preparation for the first project proposal evaluations, which will start in early 2014. Within the field of agriculture, some calls will close already on 12 March 2014; interested experts are therefore kindly requested to file their application by the end of January 2014.
In the framework of Horizon 2020, Societal Challenge "Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research and the bioeconomy" is dealing with the research and innovation in the agricultural sector and the overall supply chain.
During the registration process it is recommendable to use the keywords which are reflected in the work programme.
Experts who have experience with multi-actor projects are kindly asked to state this clearly in their applications.
Please note that the work of experts will be remunerated by the Commission.
