The 2nd round of Mission Boards will have the role of advising on the implementation of the EU Missions under Horizon Europe 2021-2027. The five Mission Boards will have up to 15 independent top experts for each Mission. The European Commission (EC) published the call for experts on 5.1.2022. The deadline for applications is 02 February 2022, 17h00, CET. Interested individuals are invited to submit their application in the online survey-management system (EUSurvey).
EU Missions support Commission priorities, such as the European Green Deal, Europe fit for the Digital Age, Beating Cancer and the New European Bauhaus
The main tasks of the new Mission Boards will be to promote the EU Missions by raising awareness of the citizens and advice on the actions of the Mission’s implementation plan. The Mission Boards resulting from this call for application will build on the work of the first round of Mission Boards (ending their mandate in December 2021).
The Mission Boards advise on the full implementation of the five EU Missions working on:
- Adaptation to Climate Change;
- Restore our Ocean and Waters;
- Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities;
- Soil Deal for Europe
EPSO encourages its members to apply particularly as expert for the Soil Deal Europe Mission Board.
