Strategic Research Advisory Board (SRAB)

The Strategic Research Advisory Board (SRAB) is a panel advising the AIT Supervisory Board. Its main responsibilities include providing comments, statements and recommendations concerning AIT’s strategic orientation and its 4-year research programme as well as formulating recommendations to the Supervisory Board.

Moreover, it provides advice and guidance to the Supervisory Board on issues connected with AIT’s research strategy. Upon request by the Supervisory Board, the SRAB reviews questions of general strategic nature and helps set the course for AIT in science and technology policy issues.

The Strategic Research Advisory Board consists of six members of international esteem in the science and research arena. The members are appointed for the same term as the Supervisory Board members (a maximum of two terms).
