New appointments to EPSRC Strategic Advisory Teams

Supplementary content information

Strategic Advisory Teams (SATs), the Digital Economy Programme Advisory Board (PAB) and the Energy Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) provide Theme Leaders at EPSRC with strategic advice to develop our themes. SATs are a flexible resource, enabling Theme Leaders to obtain the advice they need, drawing on a range of perspectives from across EPSRC's key stakeholder groups.

We have recently embarked on a refresh of the membership of our SATs. The nomination and appointment processes are described on the EPSRC website. Appointments are made for three years.

An open call was placed on the EPSRC website with a closing date of 01 July 2016. Members of EPSRC's Executive presided over the selection process and the EPSRC Appointments Assurance Committee was asked to ratify that the appropriate processes had been followed by the Executive prior to appointment of SAT, PAB and SAC members.
