The Science and Infrastructure Advisory Board

The Science and Infrastructure Advisory Board (SIAB) is an independent body that advises the HBP Science and Infrastructure Board (SIB) and Directorate (DIR) on on all issues of scientific, technical and clinical importance for the aim and objectives of the Human Brain Project. The SIAB will increasingly advise on the development of the research infrastructure EBRAINS,  user engagement and embedding HBP in international neuroscience landscape. The SIAB is a merger of the former Science Advisory Board (SAB) and Clinical Advisory Board (CAB).
