PRIMA appoints independent external experts to assist with assignments that include the evaluation of proposals and other tasks related to programme and project implementation. Experts conduct such assignments in their personal capacity, not as representatives of any organisation.
Independent external experts are selected by PRIMA on the basis of their skills, experience and knowledge, which have to be appropriate to carry out the tasks assigned.
Who can become an expert?
Independent expert evaluators must fulfil the following requirements:
Hold a university degree in a relevant field, preferably one of those addressed by the PRIMA Programme (preferably a PhD or equivalent)
Have acquired at least five years of professional experience at international level in relevant areas or activities, including but not limited to:
Research in relevant scientific fields
Evaluation of international projects and/or programmes
Use of the results of research and technological development projects
Technology transfer and innovation
Experts from any country in the world may be selected, but preference will be given to those who come from and/or have worked in the Mediterranean area
Have a very good knowledge of the English language
How does it work?
Registered experts can complete, update or delete their profile at any time by logging-in to the PRIMA website. Experts’ profiles are only available to PRIMA for consideration once they are complete and valid
IMPORTANT: Registration in the PRIMA database does not automatically entail the assignment of any tasks
