The independent contractors may assist in a wide array of activities such as evaluation of innovation proposals, monitoring activities and policy and strategy development. Skills, professional experience and expertise linked to any of the listed priorities are welcome.
The advertisement is for European-wide activities. Founded last year, EIT Urban Mobility is an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).
Candidates are instructed to fill the form for the expression of interest and send it in to enter the expert pool. On top of the specifics for the assignment, considerations may include language skills, geographical, sector and gender balance.
