Call for expressions of interest for European Parliament's STOA programme

The European Parliament (EP) has published a call for expressions of interest in the supply of services for its scientific and technological options assessment (STOA) programme.

Expressions of interest are invited from research organizations and individual researchers who wish to take part in future competitive procedures for the award of contracts for the provision of services to the European Parliament's STOA unit.

STOA's brief includes the commissioning and execution of research projects designed to assist the Parliament in the task of assessing policy options in science and technology and related areas.

Replies to this call for expressions of interest will be included in a register which will be used in making restricted calls for tender relating to the STOA work plan for the period ending 31 December 1996. The register will be divided into the following categories:

- Research organizations (CEI/EP/IV/A/STOA/95/1/A);
- Researchers (CEI/EP/IV/A/STOA/95/1/B);
- Research assistants (CEI/EP/IV/A/STOA/95/1/C);
- Advisers on research evaluation (CEI/EP/IV/A/STOA/95/1/D).

Applicants may submit an expression of interest for one category only. Research organizations and researchers must be capable of writing studies to the highest standards and researchers must be qualified to at least the level of PhD or equivalent and have relevant experience.

Research assistants must be qualified to at least the level of a university degree or equivalent and must have relevant experience. They must, in particular, be capable of providing ancillary research services including literature surveys, database searches, statistics, scientific editing and computer graphics.

Advisers on research evaluation will be highly qualified persons capable of advising the EP on quality control. These experts will be required to evaluate studies, to suggest the names of suitable external referees and to advise on quality control procedures in general. They must have several years' experience, at a senior level, in technology assessment or in research evaluation in domains relevant to technology assessment.
