EFSA would like scientific experts with experience of chemical risk assessment who are interested in making a difference to European food safety, to apply to join two of its Scientific Panels and be a part of Europe’s network of top food safety scientists. EFSA’s experts help to protect European consumers by delivering high-calibre scientific advice to European decision-makers on possible health risks associated with the food chain. Scientific experts in areas such as toxicology, chemistry, and dietary exposure assessment, are invited to apply for membership of EFSA’s Scientific Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources Added to Food (ANS Panel) and the Scientific Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids (CEF Panel) in 2014. EFSA’s call for expressions of interest is open until 17 June 2013.
At the end of December, the European Commission published roadmaps for the future program Eurostars 2 and some series of joint technology initiatives (JTIs): Innovative medicines initiative (IMI), Fuel cells and hydrogen (FCH), CleanSky and the new public-private partnership called biologically-based industries(Biobased Industries Public-Private Partnership).
The European Commission has published this guide for participants in European research projects.
The presentations of the 6th Conference of the VII framework programme of the European Union in Spain, celebrated the day 29 past in Zaragoza are now available. To access them, click on the following link:
We inform you that there are already available in the page web of CDTI, presentations, corresponding to the Information Days associated with the calls contained in the work 2013 of the seventh framework programme ICT programme, held during the month of October on the following dates:
The document „Opportunities for Researchers from the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH)" lists current funding opportunities with relevance to socio-economic sciences and humanities in various research areas within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
In addition to the 26 challenges and topics on the 2013 Work Programme of Theme 8 “Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH)“, this document provides the SSH research community with examples of more than 40 topics and sub-topics in which they could participate, all related to the various programmes under FP7.
This document serves merely as a guideline and is meant to demonstrate the wealth of possibilities for SSH scientists within FP7. Included are topics that contain SSH-related themes with strong relevance to the SSH community. Topics with some relevance are mentioned as well, but are not fully outlined.
Further information regarding the rules of participation for each call can be found on the website of the EC Participant Portal. The corresponding links for each call are provided in the document.
NET4SOCIETY is the network of National Contact Points for Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities in FP7.
