EIT Food Public Engagement invites applications from public engagement experts to join our database of independent evaluators for our various calls. The deadline for your application is 8 June 2023 and the first assignment would be in early/mid-September.

Public Engagement evaluators will be part of a team of evaluators that will select public engagement projects and/or participants in those projects.

  • Qualitatively assessing proposals according to pre-defined evaluation criteria.
  • Composing well-crafted comments in English on their scores.

  • Prior to assignment to an evaluator team, evaluators will be contracted and given a description of the tasks, duration, location (remote/physical), remuneration rates, and reimbursement methods. Evaluators will be issued both a Code of Conduct, including confidentiality, and a Conflict of Interest for each assignment to be reviewed and signed.

EIT Food Public Engagement is constituting a database of independent public engagement experts with proven professional experience evaluating proposals in the field.
