For an investigative question which requires specific scientific expertise, it may be difficult to assess whether an expert has the right experience, knowledge and/or background required. The Appointment Questionnaire offers commissioning parties a useful tool that they can use to find a suitable Ad Hoc expert and assess their expertise.
As the commissioning party, you need to submit the investigative question that needs to be answered. You can send the investigation question and the questionnaire to the expert, who will complete the latter. You will then receive the completed Appointment Questionnaire from the expert, along with their CV. Based on this information, you may decide to appoint the expert to conduct specific research and/or answer your investigative question.
