The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) is a working body that provides scientific advice to the General Assembly (GA) and actively contributes to shaping the JPI, securing scientific excellence. The GA requests advice from the SAB on their strategic and implementation plans as well as on communication and dissemination of its results.
The SAB will continuously explore the development in the field of demographic change to update the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA); it will mediate the contacts with the scientific community, both European and international, and suggest initiatives to foster joint programming including the alignment of R&D efforts and infrastructures.
The SAB currently consists of 15 researchers who are experts in at least one of the four research domains of the SRA of the JPI MYBL. The Chair and vice Chair are chosen by the members and approved by the GA.
