Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board coordinates the training and supervision activities. It is composed of one representative from each partner and one representative of the doctoral candidates. The doctoral candidate representative is elected each year by his/her fellows in the network. The partners’ concern for gender equality in a field where men are traditionally represented in much higher numbers, has led to the decision that the Supervisory Board must be composed of at least 20% women.

The Supervisory Board works to ensure an adequate balance between scientific/technological and transferable skills training and oversees the quality and quantity of supervision of the doctoral candidates. Decisions rendering a large impact on the entire consortium must be delegated to the Steering Board, including mitigation in case of scientific misconduct. Special attention is given to risk management to ensure that project risks are identified early, and that corrective actions are thoroughly considered and quickly implemented.
