The European Commission has launched a new call for expression of interest to foster skills and professional development for young students in Europe. The Horizon Europe calls Youth 2022 initiative invites master level students to participate as young observers in the evaluations of proposals under Horizon Europe, the EU’s research and innovation funding programme.

Horizon Europe: Young Observers in Evaluations

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth said:

This new initiative will allow students across Europe to witness as observers the robust, fair and impartial evaluation process at EU level that contributes to Europe’s cutting edge research and competitiveness.  We need to encourage young people to access all the opportunities EU research and innovation can offer.

Students currently enrolled in a master’s programme, in any discipline, at a university in an EU member state can apply. Students from disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds or belonging to vulnerable and marginalised groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
