Seconded National Experts at SatCen
The EU Satellite Centre receives each year a number of Seconded national experts (SNEs) for a period from 6 months up to 3 years. SNEs are national or international civil servants or persons employed in the private sector deployed to work temporarily for the SatCen under the rules applicable to National Experts on Secondment to the European Union Satellite Centre as approved by the Board of the European Union on 18 July 2007. The secondment is subject to submission of candidature by the Member State.
SNEs have a dual role – to come to the SatCen with their work experience and to benefit from the knowledge acquired during their secondment. For example, a Hungarian Seconded National Expert recently left after three years at SatCen: https://honvedelem.hu/cikk/112051_elismerest_kapott_a_magyar_katona
