SAC

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) advises the DTL Board and DTL Director on the scientific approach and quality of the DTL programmes. The DTL Board invites SAC members on the basis of their scientific track record and involvement or overview of both the Dutch and international developments. The committee members do not represent a particular organisation or DTL Partner. The SAC signals clear needs in the Dutch life science technology and data landscape, and assists in articulating these needs to major stakeholders, such as DTL Partners, government, and science funders.
