Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board

The Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board (SEAB) is a consultative body which is formed to ensure and improve the scientific performance and the quality of results of MATRICS. The members of the SEAB are provided with progress reports from MATRICS and are invited to the annual General Assembly meetings in order to monitor the progress of work, to assess the scientific quality and to give feedback. The SEAB will also consider and mention any ethical issues, which might require (stronger) attention in their feed-back.
