A Contract Agent, similarly to temporary agents, is EU personnel working for any EU institution on a fixed-term contract. Depending on the situation this can be long-term or short-term, going from minimum 3 months to 5 years, extendable with maximum 5 years. Sometimes the contract can be converted into a contract of indefinite duration.
