The Scientific Committee is a consultative expert group whose purpose is to:

  • offer Efficacity’s senior management a scientific and technical opinion on projects submitted,
  • make recommendations on research pathways for Efficacity to explore,
  • ensure the scientific consistency of the various projects with public and private sector research strategies and with strategy developed at international level,
  • oversee capitalisation of the results from the various projects to feed into Efficacity’s systemic vision.
