The Scientific Committee, made up of 27 members from different disciplines, is an advisory body responsible for the scientific relevance and quality of the GIS activities.
It meets at least four times a year and is chaired by one of its members, who is elected for a four-year term.
The Committee proposes actions, presents recommendations on scientific guidance, studies research programmes and ways of implementing them, and examines the results obtained.
It assesses the projects submitted in response to CFPs and participates in the selection of dissertations nominated for the GI’s Thesis Award.
It gives its opinion to the Steering Committee regarding the scientific and financial report drafted by the GIS direction.
