The Centre has a mandate to provide scientific advice to support the policies and decisions of Europe’s risk managers and decision makers in the European Commission, European Parliament and EU Member States. In support of this, ECDC uses external expertise for many of its tasks, including participation in scientific panels, working groups, individual consultations, and both rapid and long terms risk assessments.
In order to provide an opportunity for a wide range of experts to support ECDC’s work ECDC has set up an Expert Directory, to which all experts with relevant expertise are invited to submit an application. These experts may then be asked to participate in the work of ECDC on the basis of their areas of competence. The exact involvement of external experts in an ECDC activity is decided on a case by case basis, and expert selection is based on the expertise required in each case.
For more information, please see Q & A and invitation to submit an application.
