Evaluation Committee

The Evaluation Committee is responsible for evaluating the applications for membership of the network. The Evaluation Committee comprises ten members, who may be from outside the network.

The members of the Evaluation Committee are appointed from among academics with strong credentials, and they cannot act as evaluators of their own institution or institutions in the country in which they are employed.

The Board of Management shall appoint the members of the Evaluation Committee. Members are appointed for a period of three years; they can be reappointed once only and may thus hold office for up to six consecutive years.

The work of the members of the Evaluation Committee is pro bono.

The members of the current evaluation committee with a mandate ending in April 2022 are:
