Looking for experts on coastal and maritime tourism: Help us evaluate project proposals

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

We are looking for experts on coastal and maritime tourism to help us select project proposals for funding under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and to monitor their implementation.

Experts on coastal and maritime tourism are invited to register in the European Commission's database of experts in maritime and fisheries policy.

From this database EASME is selecting candidates with the most suitable profile for the following activities:

  • Evaluating project proposals submitted in response to EMFF calls for proposals, or
  • Monitoring the implementation of actions funded under the EMFF.

Expert evaluators are asked to examine proposals against published criteria providing comments and scores which will form the bases of the European Commission's funding decision. The experts' working language is English; a good ability to write and discuss in English is an essential requirement.

In order to have a balanced pool of experts, we would like to encourage especially candidates from the northern half of the EU and/or women to register as experts.

How does it work?

Projects are monitored and evaluated either remotely, i.e. at the expert's home or place of work, usually during 3 to 5 days over a period of two weeks, or in sessions of 3 to 5 days in Brussels. The next evaluations in the field of maritime and coastal tourism are planned for spring 2017 ('Nautical Routes for Europe' call for proposals).

Once contracted, experts are entitled to a fee of EUR 450 for each full day actually worked and to the reimbursement of travel and subsistence expenses. Remote evaluation work is reimbursed based on the number and type of proposals evaluated. For further details, please have a look at the Model Contract for Experts.
