Expert Missions (EM) have a short-term and exploratory character. As opposed to Technical Advisory Missions (TAM) which are inter-institutional in nature, an EM usually consists of one expert meeting with representatives of one or more institutions. This expert is in most cases a UN-SPIDER staff. EMs can range from a singular meeting to a several day consultation to discuss one or few specific details. Usually EMs serve to explore the possibilities to conduct a TAM, but they can also be conducted as follow-up activities to such a TAM.
