Call for Expressions of Interest 2020 for experts to be appointed as members of the European Environment Agency Scientific Committee (EEA/SC/2020/1-7)

To assist the Agency with knowledge for a more circular, green economy; and with environmental and climate considerations associated with the necessary transition of Europe’s industrial socio-economic systems.  

The advice is expected to cover knowledge of initiatives and best practices involving the re-design of Europe’s supply chains, processes and business models; eco-design principles including ‘safe-by-design’ initiatives to replace hazardous chemicals in products;  the consolidation of secondary raw material markets in view of achieving closed loops in European supply chains; the role that sustainable infrastructure developments may have in helping accelerate a shift towards resource efficiency and low-carbon objectives, and innovation opportunities in resource use (e.g. raw material processes, nanomaterials), shaping consumer behaviour, and uptake of digital technologies. 

Advice is also expected around assessment methodologies, links to novel sources of data, and how to address the challenges in this area concerning lack of data necessary to monitor uptake of circularity and innovative industrial actions, metrics and targets.
