Horizon 2020: Expert advisory groups appointed

On 5 November 2013, the European Commission appointed the members of the different groups of independent experts to advise on the research priorities of Horizon 2020.

These groups are a key element of advice for the progressive implementation of Horizon 2020’s work programmes, in particular the priorities for the development of the work programs from which the calls for research and innovation proposals are published.

In total, there are 15 different groups each one of them corresponding to a specific thematic area, including, amongst others:

  • Advisory Group for Health, Demographic change and Well-being (personal information and background of the different members of the group is available here)
  • Advisory Group for Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) (the information on the different members of the groups has not been published yet).

There are 20 to 30 designated members per group, coming from different backgrounds including industry, research and civil society representatives.

The mandate of each expert is for a duration of 2 years and is subject to renewal for an additional 2 years period.

The call for expressions of interest will stay open for the lifetime of the Horizon 2020 programme in order to accommodate the renewal of groups at the end of each mandate

The press release from the European Commission can be accessed here.

The personal information and background of the different members of the Advisory Group for Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing is available here.
