Scientific Board

GEM's Scientific Board (SB) is the body through which the global scientific strategy of the GEM Foundation and corresponding implementation is monitored, reviewed, advised and guided. It provides the Governing Board with proposals on all matters related to the implementation of the work programme. The SB is made up of not more than 20 international experts selected by the Governing Board, with proven expertise on GEM Foundation-related scientific fields (hazard, physical and social vulnerability, risk, impact and IT), experience on running large collaborative efforts, wide-ranging international connections, demonstrated capacity to secure significant contributions of data and work. They may also be representatives of international scientific associations. Membership features a duration of 2 years, renewable.

We are very much interested in receiving your feedback and ideas, so please do comment on our posts and/or rate the comments of others.

We are sorry.. we are working behind the scenes, but have no posts to share with the community yet. Feel free to contact the group manager for further information about our activities though!
