Expert Evaluators for European Commission Project Evaluations

Invitation to insert new sleep-oriented profiles into the expert database of the DG Research and Innovation of the European Union

Read more

Dear ESRS Members,

During the recent visit of an ESRS delegation to Brussels, Dr Catherine Berens, who is the Head of the Neuroscience sector of the DG Research and Innovation, and her collaborator, Dr Mark Goldammer, warmly invited us to encourage ESRS members to insert their profiles into the DG Research and Innovation Expert database.

These experts are appointed by the European Commission as peer reviewers to assist in the evaluation of proposals and monitoring of actions. In addition, they are involved in the preparation, implementation or evaluation of programmes and design of policies. This includes the Horizon 2020 Advisory Groups.

The presence of sleep experts within this database is crucial for providing a focused and unbiased evaluation of sleep research and sleep medicine-related projects and to favour the presence of sleep-related topics within the forthcoming Horizon 2020 Work Programmes.

You will find detailed information regarding registration as an expert evaluator at:

Wake-Up Bus starting in Oporto, Portugal, 3 October 2013

The bus left Oporto on 3rd October and the journey ended with a meeting at the EU Parliament in Brussels held on 15 October in which the EU Parliamentarians were addressed by ESRS officers, ANSS members, and a panel of experts about “sleepiness at the wheel”- related issues.

Core Activities of the Project:

  1. European awareness campaign about sleepiness at the wheel. A Wake-up bus will run through Europe starting in Portugal and ending in Brussels. An awareness campaign will be run by the National Sleep Society of each country visited by the Wake-up bus (Austria, Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain) and of several countries (Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Lithuania, Romania, Serbia, Sweden) that cannot be reached by the bus due to time limitation.
  2. European sleep study on “Sleepiness and Accidents”. An online questionnaire has been made available by the NSS of 20 European countries. The results will be presented and discussed at the final symposium (see point 4).
  3. Creation of an ESRS expert panel on “Sleep and Driving” which performs a state of the art review and an proposal for an action plan to be delivered to EU official
  4. A one-day symposium at the EU Parliament in Brussels as the final “highlight” of the campaign

Project group:

  • Marta Goncalves, Project Coordinator, Member Executive Committee ANSS and EU Committee, ESRS
  • Ludger Grote, Chair Executive Committee Assembly of National Sleep Societies, ESRS
  • Roberto Amici, Chair EU Committee, ESRS
  • Philippe Peigneux, President of the ESRS

Best Practice Example
The ESRS Wake-Up bus drivers were assessed by polysomnography (PSG) before the journey, a preventive measure that should be applied to all professional drivers.

[The PSG was made pro-bono at the Hospital Cuf Porto.]

    The Sleep Science School is a new ESRS initiative aimed at gathering early career sleep scientists around different fundamental topics, allowing them to gain knowledge, share their work and experience, meet experienced researchers, develop opportunities and create novel networks of excellence.

    The focus of the first edition of the ESRS Sleep Science School will be "Neural Networks in Sleep". It will be held in Frejus, a city located on the Mediterranean sea (France). Pierre-Hervé Luppi and Philippe Peigneux will coordinate this edition.
