If you are interested in becoming an independent expert to assist the Commission in the evaluation of proposals, project reviews and other implementation activities related to Safer Internet under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) from 2014 and onwards, you need to register in the Participant Portal, as the old Safer Internet expert database will no longer be valid for this purpose.

The Safer Internet programme ended in 2013, and future Safer Internet activities will be implemented under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The first call for proposals for Safer Internet generic services was published on 30 April 2014 http://inea.ec.europa.eu/en/cef/cef_telecom/apply_for_funding/2014_cef_telecom_call_-_safer_internet.htm

Further information, including link to the call for expression of interest as published in the OJ and instructions on how to register in the Participants Portal can be found on the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency's (INEA) website:


IMPORTANT: When registering in the Participant Portal you will need to tick the box labelled "other funding programmes" if you wish to be considered as an expert for the CEF programme.
