Closing date for applications is (new deadline) 31st of January 2017 at 12.00 (noon) CET

This Call for Expressions of Interest has been published on 03/12/2016 in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ): Number of the Issue OJS 234, Document 2016/S 234-425821.

The Scientific Committee consists of a maximum of fifteen members who are appointed for three years. The appointment can be renewed once for a new three-year term upon a recommendation of a pre-selection panel, and confirmation by the Governing Board. Each member serves in an independent scientific capacity and does not represent countries, employers or similar interests. Currently the BBI JU Scientific Committee has 10 members.

The membership should reflect a balanced representation of worldwide recognised experts from academia, industry, SMEs, non-governmental organisations and regulatory bodies. Collectively, the Scientific Committee members need to have the necessary scientific competencies and expertise covering the technical domains needed to make science-based recommendations to the BBI JU, and the constitution of this body must reflect regional and gender balances to the extent where possible. The Scientific Committee has a chairperson and two vice-chairpersons who are elected from among its members.

New Members shall be appointed following the specific criteria and selection process for the composition of the Scientific Committee, adopted by the Governing Board, and each time the number of Members becomes less than fifteen.

The Scientific Committee is an advisory body of the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking. It will mainly advise on the scientific priorities to be addressed in the annual work plans, as well as on the scientific achievements described in the annual activity report.
