Duration: Month 1- 48

Will appoint and support a high-level STAB which will help to monitor progress, provide independent guidance and advice to the Project coordinators, Steering Committee and the entire consortium (described in 3.2). The STAB members will be supported in their function by the project logistically by the organisation of meetings in conjunction with AQUACOSM-plus Kick-Off and GA meetings (4 times). This organisation will also maximise the contact and mutual information flow between the STAB, consortium, and the associated members (mesocosm.eu). The Project Office will also provide for direct links between the Advisory Board and all consortium bodies, groups and partners as needed.
