The European Commission has requested the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR), to deliver an opinion on the safety of surgical meshes used in urogynecological surgery.

To enable a comprehensive assessment in this area, SCENIHR has identified a need for experts to constitute the relevant working group who will help the Committee on this opinion, in the following areas: gynaecology, surgery, biocompatibility, urology and oncology.

Following the Rules of procedure of the Scientific Committees, a call for expression of interest for experts with outstanding background in the areas mentioned above is launched. International experts are also encouraged to apply.
