Checks & Balances
The FAMILY project includes various internal and external committees. These committees have different tasks and ensure continuous improvement of scientific performance as well as compliance with ethical standards and high quality of FAMILY results.
Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board (SEAB)
The Scientific and Ethical Advisory Board (SEAB) of the FAMILY project is an external consultative body which is formed to ensure and improve the scientific performance and the quality of results of FAMILY. As an important additional task, the SEAB verifies that all ethical regulations are adhered to.
The SEAB advises the FAMILY Steering Committee (SC) and the Project Management Office (PMO) upon request and provides non-binding advice as decision-making support.
