Call for Expression of Interest to become a FCT Panel Member

FCT launches a call for Expression of Interest (EOI) for scientists of all areas of knowledge who wish to be considered for the FCT Evaluation Panels. Gender, institution and age balance will be taken into consideration in setting up the panels.
