1. Introduction
 The Expert area in the Participant Portal is a frontend platform for experts interactions with the research
DGs and Agencies.
 The system was launched in July 2012 and currently
serves as a registration service for experts to submit
their profile (replaces CORDIS) with a view to being
considered for an assignment with the
Commission/Agency.
 53,125 experts currently registered of which 42,915 are
valid profiles.
2. Expert registration
 One of the main objectives of the new registration service
was to enhance the quality of the data:


data is collected in a structured format to ensure
consistency and improve the search functionality;

rules requiring experts to complete all fields in order to have
a valid profile.
Only valid profiles are visible to the Commission back-offices
when running their expertise search.
