Strategic Advisory Network nominations 2016
EPSRC is looking for new members for our Strategic Advisory Network.
We are looking to recruit around ten respected industrialists, academics and individuals working in the third sector and government organisations to join our Strategic Advisory Network. Through this exercise, we have a particular aspiration to improve the diversity of the Network.
We are moving towards a new delivery plan, which will include further thinking about how we deploy our three strategies (Balancing Capability, Building Leadership and Accelerating Impact) to achieve our vision for the UK to be the best place in the world to research, discover and innovate.
The Strategic Advisory Network provides the EPSRC Executive with strategic advice to develop and implement plans, and to make appropriate recommendations to EPSRC Council. The Network is a flexible resource, enabling the Executive to obtain the advice we need in a timely manner, drawing on a range of perspectives from across EPSRC's key stakeholder groups including academia, business, third sector and Government.
In a world where EPSRC is being pressed to achieve more with less, and where the Research Councils are working closer together, the input from our advisory network will be crucial.
