The Observatory is an Enlarged Partial Agreement of the Council of Europe whose main purpose is to collect and make available, through a series of general and thematic reports, factual information on how history is taught in all participating countries. The SAC is mandated to ensure the academic, scientific, and methodological quality of the Observatory's work. It meets at least once a year and can also be consulted by electronic means. With this call, the Observatory on History Teaching in Europe (OHTE) aims to create a pool of candidates for future membership of the Scientific Advisory Council (SAC)*. This call is addressed to experts on history teaching, practitioners as well as academic historians, who wish to be considered for membership of the OHTE Scientific Advisory Council. Successful candidates will be entered into a pool of experts valid for five years, from which new members of the Scientific Advisory Council can be elected depending on their profiles and experience. 4 positions on the SAC will be opened in June 2024; the following elections will take place in June 2025 where at least 7 other positions will become available. * The Scientific Advisory Council is composed of up to 15 members elected by the Governing Board, taking geographical, professional, and gender balance into account. To ensure the continuity of the Observatory's work and the regular inclusion of new perspectives, a rotation system is in place for members of the Scientific Advisory Council.
