The European Commission needs independent experts for Horizon 2020. As well as attracting the best academic researchers, the Commission wants to boost the number of specialists from the world of business.
Experts are needed for monitoring funded projects as well as evaluating proposals for funding, programme evaluation and policy development. A broad range of fields is covered including science, technology, innovation, social sciences and humanities, business and more, as set out in full in the published call.
The objective is to ensure that EU grants are awarded only to the best research and innovation proposals, based on a rigorous peer-review process.
Interested candidates are invited to apply online.
