The deadline for submitting expressions of interest to serve as ISCIII staff evaluators of R&D&I calls for proposals in health is now open

The Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII) has opened the call for expressions of interest for the identification of people willing to collaborate with the ISCIII in the scientific evaluation of different biomedical and health research calls, such as those related to the Acción Estratégica en Salud (AES) or other external calls that the Institute carries out through agreements with other organizations such as Health Research Institutes, pharmaceutical companies and scientific societies, among others.

In order to carry out these tasks of financing and scientific-technical monitoring of biomedical and health research projects, it is necessary to identify and select nearly a thousand experts to collaborate in the evaluation tasks that allow the selection, with integrity and independence, of projects of the highest scientific-technical quality that compete in calls for R&D&I in health. In this sense, in order to carry out its evaluation work as a Public Research Organization, the ISCIII carries out a selection process for the evaluation personnel who will perform this task.

The selection of the experts who form part of the Technical Evaluation Commissions is made taking into account criteria such as the adequacy of the area of expertise to the needs of the AES; participation in actions financed in public calls of national/state plans; the achievement of a proven track record in R&D&I activities; participation in international programs; the existence of consolidated lines of research; the development of a scientific production of impact; training capacity; experience in the evaluation of public calls, leadership and empathy, etc. These committees are periodically renewed according to criteria such as an adequate and balanced representation of areas of expertise, geographical distribution according to the center of employment of the experts and gender balance.

The deadline for submitting expressions of interest will remain permanently open.
