We are inviting expressions of interest to join a Strategy Advisory Panel (SAP) as a chair for:
- bioscience for sustainable agriculture and food
- bioscience for an integrated understanding of health
- transformative technologies
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council’s (BBSRC) SAPs play a key role in delivering BBSRC’s mission by providing expert input and advice that:
- help to shape and develop our strategy, policies and ideas
- provide assurance, monitoring and benchmarking on our research and innovation decisions
- ensures that our research and innovation decisions are supported by expert knowledge and insight from members of the scientific research and innovation community, including those with broad experience between and across disciplines
The panels are made up of six to eight members, supplemented as appropriate with additional invited experts according to business need.
We aim for our panels to reflect the diversity and experience across the breadth of the bioscience community, spanning academia, industry and policy.
