About EQIPD

Scientific and ethical advisory board (SEAB)

The Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board (SEAB) is an advisory board to the Action in general and the General Assembly and Managing Board in particular. The Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board will advise the General Assembly and the Managing Board upon the request of the Project Leader together with the Coordinator and provide non-binding advice to the General Assembly and the Managing Board as decision making support.

The members of the SEAB will be invited to the annual GA meetings in order 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 feed-back.
