Term of office 

The new ILO will be appointed for a term of 3 years. His/her term of office is set to start with immediate effect after his/her appointment, aimed for September 2021 (can be later if the Board would decide to hold interviews).

The usual practice is that appointments follow calendar years (i. e. with mandate to start on 1 Jan 2022 and end on 31 Dec. 2024), but as the Board requires that the candidate starts immediately, the term of office as ILO runs exceptionally until 31/12/2024.



The ILO will be entitled to:

  • free registration for the ESAIC annual meetings (Euroanaesthesia and Focus Meeting)
  • lump sum for covering travel costs and accommodation as needed for fulfilling the tasks and according to ESAIC policy
  • reimbursement of travel costs and accommodation for meetings with the industry partners in Brussels
