Your role as an expert evaluator

The European Commission selects candidates with the most suitable profiles for each evaluation. Selected experts are contracted for short-term assignments lasting anywhere from two days up to two weeks, in some cases up to 30 days. The working days are not always consecutive and can be spread out over several months.

Experts evaluate project proposals applying for EU funding. This is done by scoring proposals and exchanging views with fellow evaluators. You might also be asked to monitor the implementation of a funded project and provide an independent assessment of the project’s progress.

The work will be conducted remotely.
