Scientific and Implementation Advisory Board

The ACTRIS Scientific and Implementation Advisory Board (SIAB) is an external advisory body to advise and support the Interim ACTRIS Council (IAC) and the ACTRIS Preparatory Phase Project (PPP) in their implementation work to obtain the objectives of ACTRIS. They will:

  • give feedback and advice on how to best achieve the overall science objectives of ACTRIS,

  • follow the progress in achieving these goals, and help to develop strategies that will advance the development of ACTRIS,

  • promote innovative activities of ACTRIS, and

  • assure that the appropriate information about implementation is delivered to track the construction and operation scope, schedule, budget, risk, and contingency.

The SIAB comments on the overall technical plans and directions and follows the implementation and setting-up of the ACTRIS legal entity. It makes recommendations for further developing ACTRIS research infrastructure services and management.

The SIAB covers all the relevant scientific fields of expertise of ACTRIS, and the aspects of implementation. The members were decided by the IAC in February 2018 after extensive consultation in ACTRIS community.
