Role and objectives of the Delos Advisory Board

The role of the Advisory Board is threefold, providing:

  • guidance with respect to the Network's strategic orientations;
  • promotion of quality work and the visibility of the Network excellence.

The Advisory Board will make an annual assessment of past and planned activities of the Delos network, providing recommendations for improving the Network's efficiency and excellence. The assessment will be based on activity reports, deliverables, milestones of the past 12-month period, as well as on a report from the Scientific Coordinator, on behalf of the Scientific Board.
