Voice of the resarchers-Call for expression of interest

March 8, 2012

The Commission is launching a call for expression of interest targeting researchers of all ages, nationalities and disciplines residing in Europe.

The aim is to select 20 excellent candidates, full of insight and constructive ideas for:

  • Defining researchers’ role and contribution to global societal challenges such as climate change, sustainable energy, poverty…;
  • Improving the career prospects and working conditions of researchers in Europe
    (funding, mobility, career structures, social security…);
  • Strengthening the social prestige and recognition of researchers as professionals, highlighting the central role of research and researchers in society and in the generation of growth and jobs;
  • Developing new, interactive communication channels between researchers and the Commission – in order to have a tangible impact on policy-making – and between European researchers themselves.

The selected candidates will be invited to a “Voice of the Researchers” brainstorming session on 23rd April 2012 to launch the discussion, generate innovative ideas and agree on potential actions, including the perspective of jointly organizing a major event during the first quarter of 2013.

The call is open to researchers of all ages, nationalities and disciplines residing in Europe.

Candidates should apply on-line by filling out their personal information and answers to the questionnaire.
