Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board and External Ethics Advisor (EEA)
The SEAB is a consultative body which is formed to ensure and improve the scientific performance and the quality of results of TACTICS. The members of the SEAB will be invited as needed to the annual General Assembly meetings to monitor the progress of work, to assess the scientific quality and to give feedback to the consortium members, but without a right to vote. The SEAB will also consider and mention any ethical issues which might require (stronger) attention in their feedback.
Four renowned experts from the relevant scientific fields of TACTICS have agreed to be part of the Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board.
