A Call for Expressions of Interest to establish a list of experts to support activities in connection with the EU Health Programme (2008-2013), was published on April 2011 by the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC).

In particular, these activities consist of evaluating proposals submitted under annual calls for proposals, monitoring or evaluating funded projects and other tasks related to the implementation of the Programme.

Candidates complying with the eligibility, exclusion and selection criteria will be put on a list. Each time there is a need for experts for a given task, EAHC will choose from the list candidates who comply with the award criteria and whose profile and skills correspond to the tasks required. The selected experts may be offered a contract (model service contract) and will be paid on the basis of a fixed daily amount. 

The call remains open for the duration of the EU Health Programme (until the end of 2013). Nevertheless, in order to be considered as an expert for the evaluation of proposals, the applications should be submitted the soonest possible.

Individuals interested in submitting their expression of interest (application) are invited to read the text of the Call published in the Supplement to the Official Journal No. S 65 02/04/2011, and to register via a EAHC's dedicated site.

Heidi wiki (Health in Europe: Information and Data Interface), launched on May 2012 by the EC DG SANCO, is an internet based wiki tool for European health information and data. It aims to offer a broad spectrum of articles and data, relating e.g. to health status, diseases, determinants, health systems and policies. Heidi provides a tool for sharing, comparing and developing information across Europe. 

Heidi is a dynamic platform in which users can correct existing information and publish new data quickly. They can also give feedback and discuss the quality or the usefulness of the data. The editors have direct access to write text on-line. 

Access to edit and up-date articles in Heidi wiki is reserved to health experts recognized in their field at European level. The European Commission grants access rights to experts to write and edit the Heidi articles, following an on-line application.
