Monitoring the RTD Framework Programmes - Call for applications

The European Commission, DG XII, has published a call for applications relating to the annual monitoring exercises for the Fourth Framework Programme and the Euratom Framework Programme.

The Commission is inviting applications from suitably qualified individuals or companies for inclusion on the lists of experts for monitoring the Fourth Framework Programme and the Euratom Framework Programme. The annual monitoring exercises concerned are those for 1997, 1998 and 1999. The aim of the annual monitoring exercises is to monitor progress in relation to the scientific criteria and objectives set out in the Programmes.

Applicants must provide evidence of their capacities in the field of activity concerned, and should have held posts of senior responsibility in the public or private sector. In addition, they must also have professional experience in one or more of the following fields:

- Research in relevant fields, RTD management and exploitation of results;
- Formulation of RTD, demonstration or innovation policies and strategies;
- Evaluation of RTD, and analysis and interpretation of scientific data;
- Technology transfer and use of RTD results;
- International cooperation in the fields of science and technology.

To ensure the impartiality of the exercises, applicants must not be, or have been at any stage in the current Framework Programme, a contractor, member of a programme committee or an expert associated with a committee. Participants in previous monitoring or evaluation exercises, or in proposal evaluation may apply, subject to the above conditions.

Each year the Commission will appoint a panel of experts from the lists. The panel will be designed to ensure a fair balance both geographically and between the various research circles.
