News archive - Call for expression of interest to become members of its new European Innovation Partnership on raw materialsBack
DG ENTR is looking for participants to become members of its new European Innovation Partnership on raw materials. They will develop its Strategic Implementation Plan and contribute to finding innovative solutions along the entire raw materials value chain and bringing growth and jobs in the EU. All interested participants should lodge their interest by following the link.
Applications should be submitted before September 28, 2012.
You can reply in English, German or French.
The call is open for expression of interest in taking part in the High Level Steering Group (HLSG), Sherpa Group and the Operational Groups (OGs) of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials. Members will be appointed in a personal capacity and for an initial period of four years, after which a new call will be organised.
The EIP aims to ensure sustainable access to raw materials for Europe by promoting innovation along the entire value chain. With ever-increasing global demand for raw materials, it is essential that Europe develops innovative solutions to maintain competiveness and provide jobs and growth for its citizens. For more information, please consult the following website: http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/raw-materials/innovation-partnership/index_en.htm
The HLSG will be composed of around 25 individuals and will develop the strategic implementation plan (SIP) of the EIP. The OGs will provide expert advice and convert the SIP into more detailed tasks and actions. A Sherpa Group will provide the link between the orientation level of the HLSG and the planning/implementation level of the OGs. More information on the composition and responsibilities of the different groups can be found in the
Staff Working Document (http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/raw-materials/files/docs/staff_working_document_final_en.pdf).
The six Member States representatives and the EIB/EIF representative in the HLSG will be directly invited by the European Commission to participate.
This call concerns the other categories of stakeholders:
NB: Interested parties will only be nominated when the Council and European Parliament have endorsed the EIP.
For the High Level Steering Group, applicants must meet the specific criteria layed out in the call, e.g. they should be CEOs of EU industries, NGO representatives, high-level representatives of research organisations or networks of regions (including, for example, ERA-NET, European geological surveys, European Technology Platforms).
Applications (in English, French or German) should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by the very latest on 28 September 2012, and include a one-page covering letter explaining how your professional background meets the criteria, including any supporting recommendations and a CV of maximum two pages, preferably in Europass format.
