Top Experts Needed for EU Missions
EU Missions are an innovative initiative under Horizon Europe that aim to transform European society. They will support the transition to a greener, healthier, more inclusive and resilient continent.
The European Commission has a call for experts to join the five Mission Boards.
The Mission Boards will advise on 5 EU Missions in the following areas:
Ocean and Water

The five Boards will have up to 15 independent top experts for each Mission. The main tasks of the new Boards will be to promote the EU Missions by raising awareness of the citizens and providing advice.
Discussing the missions, Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, says ‘This call is an opportunity to take on new skills and bring together top experts to support the Missions. They will help inspire citizens and advise on the implementation plans. Together we will make our Missions a success.’
