Agenda (2023)

2023 IHE-Europe Connectathon in Rennes: Monitor Recruitment Form

A "Call for monitors" webinar was organised on 3 April. If you were not able to make it, here are the recording and slides.


Thank you for your interest in becoming a monitor at the European Connectathon Rennes 2023. We kindly ask you to fill in this form as part of our recruitement process. However filling the form does not mean that you will be automatically allowed to join the team. Applications are reviewed and accepted based on IHE-Europe monitor recruitment process and criteria (see below).

Monitors are members of the community who serve as independent evaluators of the tests results during the IHE Connectathon. Monitors examine tests in real time or examine evidence after the test. Connectathon Monitors should be recommended by their IHE National initiative, if one exists in their country of residence.  Monitors from countries without an IHE National Initiative may apply directly.

Monitors agree to perform their duties under the supervision of the Connectathon Technical Manager and operate in a collaborative manner as part of the Testing Team

Note that France welcomes the IHE-Europe Connectathon in Rennes.

Monitors availability is expected during the entire connectathon event:  from 25th (10AM) to 29th September (Noon) 2023 in Rennes, France.

Monitor selection critieria:

  • The candidate must not work for a company that is participating (or has participated) in an IHE Connectathon as a supplier.
  • Field and level of expertise in the "testable profiles"
  • Number of companies from the monitors' origin country
    • We try to maintain a constant ratio between the number of companies and the number of monitors from a given country.
  • No more than 3 persons from the same company to allow the dissemination of IHE​
  • The monitor must have no conflict of interest and must accept the NDA.
  • The method of financing travel and accommodation will also be taken into account. IHE-Europe may refuse to pay for air tickets for travel outside Europe.
  • To enable the dissemination of IHE, new monitors are more than welcome, they could represent between 15 and 20% of the team.

The information entered in the form is only used by the Connectathon Management Team and will be kept in our records up to one year after the connectathon ends. Data will be deleted earlier upon writing request.

You need an account to fill out this form. If you do not have one yet, contact Wei Jing TEY; she will be happy to help.
