The panels are tasked to:

  • maintain an overview of activities within the area
  • develop and maintain a science vision and long-term strategy and road map by assessing the merit of current and future science opportunities
  • develop and maintain a technology road map for their area of research
  • consult and interact with the community to ensure its views are canvassed and there is an appropriate and effective route for communication with STFC on strategic programmatic issues
  • provide advice to the Science Board on specific questions as requested
  • liaise with other advisory panels when appropriate.

The remit of the panels includes technology development, theory, high-performance computing and data curation issues in their respective areas.

STFC supports and organises one face-to-face meeting of each panel per year, but panel members are encouraged to organise additional meetings as they feel necessary.
