As part of the European Year of Youth 2022, master’s students in the EU are invited to become “Young Observers” in Horizon Europe proposal evaluations.
Students currently enrolled in a master’s programme, in any discipline, at a university in an EU Member State can apply to this initiative. Students from disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds or belonging to vulnerable and marginalised groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
The selection process for the Young Observers is continuous to call closure (14 December 2022). Young Observers will be invited at different times, according to the timetable of the evaluations. Apply now to maximise your chances.
Once selected as a Young Observer you will be invited to participate in Horizon Europe call evaluations taking place from September 2022. The evaluations cover all fields of science in the broad sense, ranging from social sciences and humanities to natural sciences and engineering.
You will take part from the beginning of the evaluations of the relevant call to the recommendation of funded proposals in the so-called ‘panel meeting’. From the start of your observation of the evaluation process, you will be matched with a mentor from the European Commission, who will accompany you throughout the process.
