Evaluation experts sought for Fifth Framework Programme

The European Commission, DG XII, is looking for experts to evaluate proposals made to the forthcoming Fifth Framework Programme.

Applicants selected by the Commission for inclusion in the panel will help to evaluate proposals in line with the scientific, technological and socio-economic aims laid down in the proposals for the Fifth Framework Programme.

Applicants must be nationals of an EU Member State, a state associated with the Framework programmes or a state with which the commission has concluded a cooperation agreement in the field of science and technology.

Applicants must provide evidence of appropriate competence in the area of activity they apply for and also have a high level of professional experience in the public or private sector in one or more of the following areas or activities:

- Research in the relevant scientific and technological fields;
- Administration, management or evaluation of research and technological development projects;
- Use of the results of research and technological development projects, transfer of technologies and innovation;
- International cooperation in science and technology;
- Development of human capital.

Every application received will be included in the list of potential experts on the basis of key words in the application form. This list can be used for compiling evaluation panels up to 30 September 2002.

Only applications received before 1 February 1999 will be considered for inclusion in the panels of experts to evaluate proposals received in response to the first call for proposals launched by each specific programme. Applications received after 1 February 1999 will be considered for the assessment of other calls for proposals.

On conclusion of their contract, experts will have to sign a declaration certifying that there is no conflict of interest between the work of the evaluation panel for which they are selected and the posts they occupy.

Experts who are already on the lists drawn up for the implementation of the Fourth Framework Programme must submit a fresh application.
