These missions will be high-ambition, high profile initiatives, to find solutions to some of the major challenges faced by European citizens, with a clear target that captures the imagination of citizens at large.

There will be five ‘Mission Boards’, one for each of the following areas:

  • Adaptation to climate change including societal transformation;
  • Cancer;
  • Healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters;
  • Climate-neutral and smart cities;
  • Soil health and food.

The first task of the ‘Mission Boards’ will be to identify and design one or more specific missions for each of the mission areas, in consultation with stakeholders and citizens.

The ‘Mission Boards’ will be comprised of high-level independent experts, who will help shape the missions including their respective objectives, indicators and timelines. The Commission is looking for individuals who can bring strategic skills and expertise, from across the spectrum of possible fields to support the work of the missions, and with profiles from industry, innovation and business; academia and research; policy makers and practitioners; end-users and key stakeholders.

Call for applications

The call for applications is available online. The deadline for applications is 11 June 2019. Each of the ‘Mission Boards’ shall consist of up to 15 members.
