The advisory board is an external independent consultation committee, whose mission is to assess that the technical progress in MESH remains innovative and forward looking, to evaluate if MESH is producing work of sufficient technical quality, to ensure that the activities in MESH are adequately tailored towards future exploitation of results, and that the project is keeping the necessary ethical standards. It will do so by peer review of selected MESH deliverables, and by providing feedback on the progress of WPs and tasks.
The MESH advisory board is constituted from individuals and organisations both within and outside of the project consortium, according to the following structure:
Suitable non-disclosure agreements allow advisory board members access to relevant MESH information. The advisory board is a live, non-formal group, in the sense that its members are recruited along the project’s life and have different degrees of commitment, depending on their role.
