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 EMTICS. The members of the SEAB will be invited to the annual GA meetings in order to monitor the progress of work, to assess the scientific quality and to give feed-back to the Consortium members, but without a right to vote. The SEAB will also consider and mention any ethical issues which might require (stronger) attention in their feed-back.
