EC extends deadline for call for SAM candidate nominations
The European Commission (EC) has announced that the deadline for the call for nominations of candidates for membership of the High Level Group of Scientific Advisors of the EC's Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) has been extended to 22 January 2018. The seven members of the SAM HLG are appointed by the Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, from a short list established by an Identification Committee.
The Commission Decision of 16 October 2015 on the setting up of the High Level Group of Scientific Advisors states that the short list also serves as a pool of candidates for the replacement of members of the group. The short list now needs to be replenished to build a pool of first-class candidates for replacements. The Commission therefore invites the organisations and bodies that make up the European scientific and research community to submit high level nominations. The nominations will be assessed by the Identification Committee on the basis of the factors and conditions set out in the 2015 Commission Decision.
The address for sending submissions is EC-SAM@ec.europa.eu.
