Pool of Experts

Research Committees A-D assess responsive mode research grant applications. Each Research Committee has a core membership that is complemented at meetings by additional members drawn from the Pool of Experts.

Jump to an expert (sorted by surname):

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z 

Peer review

Please note that this list is constantly under review. Members are currently appointed for one year in the first instance with a maximum service of three years or six meeting attendances (whichever occurs first).

Anyone interested in serving on the pool will need to apply through our online application system. Calls are generally held annually and we anticipate the next will be open in May 2019.

To see if there is a call open, visit our Committee/Pool membership page (see related links).
