Call for Expression of Interest for the establishment of a list of prospective Individual Experts to act as Adjudicators for disputes arising from Operational Contracts of Fusion for Energy – F4E-ADJ-CALL-2021

The Call for expression of interest for the establishment of a list of prospective individual experts to act as adjudicators for disputes arising from Operational Contracts of Fusion for Energy has been launched.

A number of Operational Contracts[1] of Fusion for Energy include a specific dispute settlement mechanism starting with “Adjudication”, based on FIDIC contract provisions.

Adjudication is a procedure by which any party to a construction contract has a right to have a dispute decided by an adjudicator. This process is intended to be quicker and more cost effective than litigation or arbitration. The adjudicator(s) must generally decide the dispute in a very short time and the decision adopted is binding.

The panel of adjudicators should consist of highly qualified individuals (primarily engineers) specialised in the field of the subject matter of the dispute.

Fusion for Energy hereby invites applications from individuals with a view to establishing a list of individual independent experts who may be called upon to act as adjudicators in order to provide technical expertise related to their technical area for the resolution of claims. In addition, the adjudicators may be requested to attend a number of information sessions/training days to maintain sound knowledge of overall progress of the contracts and ensure early detection of any potential disagreement with Contractors.

The list shall be valid for a period of five years from 11th May 2021, date of publication of this call on the official website of Fusion for Energy.

For further information, in particular on the technical areas, conditions of appointment, eligibility criteria etc. please consult the full text of the Call for Experts Adjudicators.

Applications shall be submitted via e-mail to f4e-adjudicators@f4e.europa.eu.
