Scientific Committee

The role of the Scientific Committee

The Scientific Committee is an advisory body of the BBI JU established in accordance with BBI JU Regulation. The Scientific Committee assists the BBI JU in providing scientific advice on the areas of work undertaken by the BBI JU.

The Scientific Committee has two major tasks:

a) Advise on the scientific priorities to be addressed in the annual work plans;

b) Advise on the scientific achievements described in the annual activity report.

Moreover, the Governing Board can ask the Scientific Committee to provide advice on a specific matter of interest to the BBI JU such as the adjustment of the Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda (SIRA).
