Call for Independent Experts (2018-2021): Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe certification and regular evaluation cycles

Pursuant Resolution CM/Res(2013)67, the Secretariat of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe (EPA) shall update every three years its list of eligible independent experts who may be asked to provide opinions on the award of the “Cultural Route of the Council of Europe” certification and the evaluation of Cultural Routes networks and projects, as well as to provide expertise for the launch and further development and consolidation of cultural routes.

Selected experts will analyse the application and evaluation files submitted by cultural route networks interested in obtaining or maintaining the certification “Cultural Route of the Council of Europe” in accordance with Resolution CM / Res (2013) 67 revising the rules for the award of the “Cultural Route of the Council of Europe” certification.

Working languages for drafting reports will be English or French.

Selected experts who have been involved in advising applicants on the development of their cultural route projects prior to the application or who have been involved in any capacity in the management, governance or scientific committee of a cultural route may not qualify to asses such an application.

Deadline for applications: 31 August 2018.
