The Advisory Board

With respect to the Scientific Board, the Advisory Board's role is threefold:

  • it will provide external assessment of the results achieved by the network, acting as a peer-review council;
  • it will provide guidance with respect to the network’s strategic orientations;
  • it will provide support of the network’s excellence.

The board is composed of 5 senior external experts in the field, able to provide an impartial assessment of the work carried out by the network, and it will include at least two representatives of non-European research communities. The Scientific Coordinator of the Network, in agreement with the Commission, will nominate the members and the Chair of the AB.The independent experts of the board are required to make an annual assessment of the results achieved during the preceding year and the activities planned for the successive year of the Network, and to provide recommendations for improving the network’s efficiency and excellence. 
They will meet annually in order to review the activities and achievements of the Network, based on the activity reports, the deliverables produced and the milestones achieved during the previous 12-month period. The Scientific Board is invited to attend part of the meeting and present a report on the “State of the Network”, containing a self-assessment of the Network activities and the perceived or potential problems. The results of the Advisory Board review will be given in a written report.
