Knowledge exchange with independent experts is seen as a necessity by the TRUSTS consortium to open perspectives and take a state-of-the-art approach to enable long-term success of the project. For this purpose, potential partners were proposed by the entire consortium and subjected to an intensive review.
With the Stakeholder Advisory Board (SAB), TRUSTS integrates external expertise in order to be able to include a wide variety of perspectives in the development process. The experts are advisors, but also ambassadors for TRUSTS and its vision of a federated data infrastructure.
The SAB will meet several times until the end of the project, provide constructive input for current challenges in the project and provide consultative support. They will contribute to the results of the project, to its outreach and uptake.
