RSCN: Panel of Experts

The RSCN wishes to create a select list of Experts in active and healthy ageing within a whole life course approach that may be called upon to:

  1. provide advice as a member of an Advisory Board or Expert Group to a project,
  2. become members of RSCN expert working groups
  3. contribute as speakers at events organised by the RSCN, or supported by the RSCN

Where an Expert may be required as a member of an Advisory Board or Expert Group to a project the individual will be required to agree their participation with their employer before taking up the position.

On occasions Experts on the select list may be required to submit a short contract proposal if this is required under the Grant Agreement for an EU or other funded project.

Depending on the type of engagement Experts may be eligible to receive a pre-agreed fee and/or reimbursement of expenses. It should be noted however, that not all engagements with, or on behalf of, the RSCN may entail such payments. The terms of each engagement will be clearly set out in subsequent documentation made available to Experts on the select list.

In particular we are interested in receiving expressions of interest for inclusion on the select list from health and care professionals, researchers, policy makers, business leaders, etc with expertise/experience in the following areas:

·  Artificial Intelligence (AI, and Machine Learning (ML)

·  Personalised Medicine

·  Comorbidity and chronic disease

·  Digital Health and Care

·  Food and Nutrition

·  Medicines Management and Polypharmacy

·  Scaling-up evidence-based solutions

We would appreciate if you can circulate this invitation to be included on the RSCN Panel of Experts List within your Reference Site or your Thematic Working Group.

Individuals interested in being included on the Expert Panel List should forward a short CV and covering letter to by 6 January 2022. The covering letter should set out the area(s)  the individual is interested in, key achievements in this area and any relevant research they have been involved on.

The selection process will also include a short interview which will take place in January 2022.

Inclusion on the Expert Panel List is not a guarantee an individual will be engaged by the RSCN.

New RSCN Thematic Working Group on Disease Prevention in Women’s Health – Call for Expressions

Population ageing is a world-wide challenge threatening sustainability of our social and health systems. The RSCN and its Thematic Working Groups have been working on the implementation of innovative good practices for a life-course approach to active and healthy ageing, where age transition represent critical periods associated with physiologic changes that influence long-term health and longevity.

The RSCN proposes establishing a Thematic Working Group on Women’s Health within the Thematic Action Area “Health Promotion and Disease Prevention”. The title of the Thematic Working Group will be “Disease Prevention in women’s health”. The Thematic Working Group will explore the challenges for women’s health during the life-course transitions, and the experiences to address them with innovative policies, approaches and technologies.

Membership of the Thematic Working Group is open to all Reference Sites and members of our other Thematic Working Groups. It will be of particular interest to clinicians, specialist nurses, researchers, public health consultants, patient organisations, and digital technology companies. In addition to representation from Reference Sites the Thematic Working Group will also include representatives from organisations in South and Central America as part of a collaboration agreement the RSCN has with the Americas Continental Health Alliance (ACHA). Further details on this agreement and other joint initiatives the RSCN and ACHA propose taking forward will be announced later.

Expressions of Interest in joining the Thematic Working Group should be sent to and copied to by close of business 12th November 2021.
