Commission invites to nominate new members for Group of Chief Scientific Advisors
The European Commission has published an open call to European scientific and research community organisations to nominate candidates for membership of the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors. The Group of Chief Scientific Advisors provides high quality and independent scientific advice to the College of European Commissioners on any subject when requested to do so. Its seven members are appointed by the Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation from a short list established under the responsibility of an independent, high-level identification committee. European scientific and research community organisations are invited to nominate outstanding candidates for the renewal of this short list. Self-nominations are not allowed.
The Identification Committee will assess the nominations based on specific factors and conditions, e.g. gender balance and consideration of younger next-generation leaders. Organisations interested in nominating candidates will find all necessary background information here.
The deadline for submitting nominations is 15 June 2020.
