The call for expressions of interest is targeted at researchers of all ages, nationalities and disciplines and it is hoped that 20 candidates will be appointed to advise on policy issues such as:
- Defining the researchers’ role and contribution to global societal challenges;
- Improving the career prospects and working conditions of researchers in Europe;
- Strengthening the social prestige and recognition of researchers; and
- Developing new, interactive communication channels between researchers and the Commission.
Selected candidates will be invited to a brainstorming session on 23 April 2012. This is an excellent opportunity for researchers to provide input into future policy. To apply you have to answer 4 questions with no more than a 150 word answer for each in an online expression of interest , but the deadline is Thursday (15th March) so be quick!
