Call for Horizon 2020 advisors
The European Commission has launched a call asking experts from all fields to participate in shaping the agenda of Horizon 2020, the European Union's future funding programme for research and innovation. This marks the first time that the Commission has launched such a call for its research programme.
Advisory groups will provide high quality and timely advice for the preparation of the Horizon 2020 calls for project proposals. The groups will encourage dialogue between all levels of government, civil society and business from all EU Member States, and influence the direction of EU research and innovation funding until 2020.
The expert advisory groups will start their work in spring this year. Individuals and actors wishing to be considered for the first advisory groups have until 6 March 2013 5 p.m. (GTM+1) to register.
The call for expressions of interest will remain open for the lifetime of the Horizon 2020 programme in order to accommodate the renewal of groups at the end of each mandate.
Individuals can express their interest, acting either in a personal capacity, as representatives of collective interest groups or as representatives of organisations.
