The European Commission seeks new Mission Board members

11 Jan, 2022

The European Commission has launched a call for experts to join the five Mission Boards who will advise on the implementation of the EU Missions. The main tasks of these Borads will be to promote the EU Missions by raising awareness of citizens and providing advice on the actions of the Mission’s implementation plan. The new Mission Board members should have the capacity for strategic analysis thinking, and show a deep commitment to the success of the Missions.

The Mission Board should be capable of devising, demonstrating, applying and upscaling solutions on the ground in order to implement the Missions. The Mission Boards resulting from this call for application will build on the work of the first phase Mission Boards who were in charge until December 2021.

The Mission Boards, consisting of up to 15 independent high-level individuals, advise on the full implementation of the five EU Missions working on:

  • Adaptation to Climate Change;
  • Cancer;
  • Restore our Ocean and Waters;
  • Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities;
  • Soil Deal for Europe.

The deadline for applications is 2 February 2022.
