 FUSION-DC Strategic Advisory Board

The Strategic Advisory Board will consist of maximum 10 members: eminent and relevant scholars, experts, and policy makers (some of them from the Associated Members and most of them unrelated to the full Partners). It is established by the Steering Committee.


The Board will:

  • Contribute to the yearly selection of research themes. The Board can define ‘priority themes for which topics are requested’.
  • Establish and maintain the links between FUSION-DC and industry.
  • Propose research-related activities (e.g. internships) in industry.
  • Help the Consortium to evaluate the results of QA mechanisms.
  • Assist in developing sustainability plans.
