The Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) provides advice on CMCC’s research activities, strategic plan and organization, as well as support on specific matters raised by the Chairman of the Board. It is appointed by the Board and is made up of eight highly qualified experts selected among the international scientific and academic community. Members of the SAP are appointed by rotation every three years: four new members are appointed, four of the old members are confirmed and the four old members not confirmed are appointed as “Honorary Fellows”.
