We need your investment expertise! Become an evaluator for the SME Instrument

Do you have what it takes to spot the best of the best among thousands of innovations? Can you tell which of thousands of brilliant ideas has the capacity to disrupt the markets? We are looking for investors who are experts in innovation and can bring their know-how to the selection panel. 

As of 2018, the selection procedure of the SME Instrument will be revamped. Preparations are still underway but the goal is to make the SME Instrument more relevant and easier to access for start-ups and innovators. Changes include adapting the SME Instrument so that it can support innovations in any area as opposed to predefined topics and introducing an interview stage to evaluate the most promising project proposals.



How does the evaluation work?

As an evaluator you would participate in the selection process that will have two steps:

  • Step 1- Remote Evaluation: All proposals would be evaluated remotely by 4 independent experts. 
  • Step 2 - The proposals with top-scores will be invited for Interviews by a selection panel of experts in Brussels.


Interested? Apply now!

Thank you for pointing out some difficulties in registering as a prospective expert. We are currently working on easing the access to our expert registration system. Changes will become visible early June.
