  • Research and Innovation: Commission opens search for expert advisors for Horizon 2020

    Call for expressions of interest in the field of “Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies”

    The European Commission is searching for experts from all fields to participate in shaping the agenda of Horizon 2020, the European Union's future funding programme for research and innovation. The experts of the advisory groups will provide high quality and timely advice for the preparation of the Horizon 2020 calls for project proposals.

    The Commission services plan to set up a certain number of Advisory Groups, amongst others in the field of “Leadership in enabling and industrial technologies”. To reach the broadest range of individuals and actors with profiles suited to contribute to the European Union's vision and objectives for Horizon 2020, including striving for a large proportion of newcomers, and to gain consistent and consolidated advice of high quality, the Commission is calling for expressions of interest with the aim of creating lists of high level experts that will participate in each of these groups.

    The deadline to express your interest is 06 March 2013 at 17.00, Brussels local time (CET). More details can be found on the Horizon 2020 website.
