AIMES Scientific Steering Committee

AIMES is guided by a Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) that functions in a participatory role. The SSC is responsible for providing scientific guidance and overseeing the development, planning and implementation of the AIMES project. Integration across scientific disciplines is key to the AIMES philosophy and the composition of the AIMES SSC necessarily includes both natural and social scientists. The terms of reference can be found here.
