EFSA’s Scientific Committee and Panels are composed of independent scientific experts who carry out scientific assessments and develop related assessment methodologies. Membership is renewed every three years. A call is launched one year before each renewal and, after a thorough selection process, experts are nominated by the EFSA Management Board based on a shortlist submitted by the Executive Director.
The next renewal of the Scientific Committee and Panels will take place in July 2018. A call for applications was carried out from June to September 2017.
