Important Notice

Please note that this expression of interest to participate in the AI-BOOST Large Grand Challenge Open Call evaluation as an external expert is NOT binding and does NOT constitute any commitment to the AI-BOOST project. 

The selection of experts to support AI-BOOST in the evaluation of the proposals will be taken at a later stage since it depends on the number of proposals received, their origin, as well as the origin of the potential evaluators, their affiliations, their expertise and the balance between various criteria (e.g. gender, background, affiliation type, age, expertise etc.). Furthermore, we are obliged to frequently change experts that support in the evaluations of proposals.
