ECDC uses external expertise for many of its tasks: for its scientific panels, for its working groups and also for individual consultations. In order to widen its roster of potential experts, ECDC has set up a “Candidate Expert Directory”, to which all experts with relevant expertise are invited to submit an application. These candidate experts may then be asked to participate in the work of ECDC on the basis of their areas of competence.
External experts can assist the Centre in provision of scientific advice to support the policies and decisions of Europe’s risk managers and policy/decision makers in the European Commission, European Parliament and EU Member States.
For more information, please see Q & A and invitation to submit an application.
