These high-level experts will carry out policy services to support OACPS Member States to enhance their Research and Innovation systems.

Brussels, 26 January 2021/OACPS: As part of its new ‘Policy Support Facility’ (PSF), aimed at boosting research and innovation (R&I) in Members of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS), the Secretariat of the OACPS has launched a Call for Declarations of Interest (DoI), to establish a roster of experts for short-term assignments in R&I policy domains.

Through this new and innovative mechanism, national or regional public authorities from OACPS Member States (in charge of R&I and higher education) can access a broad range of on-demand and tailor-made services to improve their policy-making practices.

The technical assistance for the delivery of the PSF requires a range of high-profile specialists in R&I domains. Candidates should also preferably be knowledgeable of R&I policies in ACP countries.

Persons interested in being registered in the PSF database of experts can click on the link below to find all relevant information, such as the selection criteria, the required expertise, the description of the tasks and their duration.

Implemented by the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and funded by the European Union, the OACPS Research and Innovation programme aims to strengthen R&I capacity in OACPS Member States, in order to unlock their innovation potential for sustainable development.
