When implementing humanitarian aid projects outside the European Union, the European Commission’s humanitarian aid and civil protection department, or ECHO, taps its community of experts to provide technical assistance in their respective specialist areas. Currently, just nearly 40 – all of whom must be EU citizens – have made this list.

Joining that roster begins with filling out the online application form for individual experts at the ECHO website. The form asks information typically sought from applicants, including personal data, contact details, educational background, language skills and work experience.
