The initiative is looking forward to select two high-profile experts with different -but complementary- scientific, social and policy-related expertise to develop a joint Policy Brief.

The call aims to attract experts in biotechnology and social science sable to develop a joint document condensing all the new knowledge generated, policy & technology-related challenges and lessons learned towards further research.

The Policy Brief is expected to extract key findings, recommendations, demands and open challenges identified from the projects funded under ERA-CoBioTech’s umbrella. In order to involve all relevant actors, an internal joint workshop (including selected experts and project representatives), will have to be arranged[1] and facilitated by the two experts to discuss the document’s scope, structure and reach.

The idea is to develop a comprehensive document including recommendations and key data to explore the disruptive potential of the remarkable key-enabling technologies involved in all ERA-CoBioTech’s projects (such as SynBio, systems biology, omics…) and identify most relevant challenges ahead.

This call for experts is framed within ERA-CoBioTech’s Additional Activities which, apart from joint calls for research proposals, has launched a variety of activities intended to support, train and help its beneficiaries to obtain the maximum impact from their research efforts.

ERA-CoBioTech is understood as more than a mere R&D funding programme. As a result, the initiative takes such a proactive approach to project and programme management in order to contribute turning frontier science and technological visions into real market opportunities.

Expressions of interest shall be submitted via the ERA-CoBioTech Submission Form within the deadline, set for December 6th, 2021 @13:00 CET.

All details are available in the Call Announcement.
