Independent Ethical and Advisory Board

i-CONSENT counts on an Ethical Advisory Board (EAB), an independent body that advises the project Consortium and
facilitates, builds upon and complements existing oversight regimes by competent
ethical and legal authorities.

The EAB is invited to the project meetings, consulted when specific ethical issues may benefit from their counsel, and periodically informed about the scientific progress of the project. The members of the EAB are named by the Steering Committee and provide non-binding advice as decision making support to the Steering Committee.
