Ethics Advisory Committee (EAC)
The EAC will be the guardians of the correct governance practices which will review at regular intervals. The committee must ensure that the project results are addressing correctly ethical concerns. The EAC consists of members of the EmerGent project and 2 external ethical experts in order to ensure an independent view and quality control of the work in EmerGent.
