New SISB members - 2013 appointments
The Science & Innovation Strategy Board (SISB) is Council's main source of advice on science and innovation matters. It is responsible, amongst other things, for developing NERC's integrated science strategy, advising on the balance of the science portfolio and advising on the strategic priority of funding new programmes and initiatives.
Four new SISB members have been appointed in place of those who have recently retired. In taking these non-executive appointments, the new members will participate as individuals rather than as representatives of their affiliate organisations.
New appointments from January 2013:
Professor Elizabeth Baggs - School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen.
Professor Paul Bates - School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol.
Professor Simon Redfern - Department of Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge.
Professor William Sutherland - Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge.
