European Commission actively searches for external experts in hepatogastroenterology

Monday, 10 February 2014 14:46

Each year, the European Commission Directorate General for Research & Innovation, with the help of external experts, reviews many research proposals. Becoming an external expert has several advantages, such as gaining valuable insight into the Horizon 2020 programme and extensive network opportunities. Experts act in their personal, independent capacity and do not represent their institutions or organisations. Registering as an expert will not interfere with the capacity to apply for Horizon 2020 funding. Furthermore, compensation is offered for the evaluation work. More information can be found here.
