Call for applications with a view to setting up advisory groups for the key actions of the specific programmes for research (Fifth Framework Programme)

Funded under: FP5

Abstract

High-level scientific experts have been invited to apply to assist the European Commission in establishing work programmes for the Key Actions under the upcoming Fifth Framework Programme. A total of 17 new research advisory groups are to be set up to help the Commission in the implementation of the Programme, by contributing to the definition of research policy guidelines for the 22 Key Actions planned.

The first task of these groups - each consisting of 15 to 20 members - will be to advise on the work programmes which will set out in detail the research fields to be supported under the new Programme. This work is expected to start by the end of July 1998, and will be followed up with the programming of the calls for proposals and defining the criteria to be used in evaluating project proposals.

Members of the groups will be high-level industrialists, academic researchers, users of research results (for example patient groups), members of public regulatory bodies, and representatives of other fields with an interest in research.
