Also you need to submit an application to be accepted as a candidate to the Council pool of experts.
If you have completed your expert profile on the expert database and it is valid (as decided by the Council, it complies with the Council-approved minimum requirements laid out in the General Rules on the Appointment and Activities of Experts of the Research Council of Lithuania), you become a potential expert who can be invited to participate in the proposal evaluation or a project review session requiring your particular expertise.

The Council shall select experts according to their need of expertise. In the selection of experts, a potential conflict of interests shall also be taken into account.
