UK-IODP Programme Advisory Group

The Programme Advisory Group (PAG) is tasked with advising NERC, via the Science Coordinator and the Programme Executive Board on the delivery of the programme, recommending the award of research funds, and the integration of programme science. PAG typically meets twice per year. The PAG comprises a chair, and ESO and NERC representatives, the Science Coordinator, and UK delegates of the IODP Science Evaluation Panel (SEP), and the Environmental Protection and Safety Panel (EPSP) (http://www.iodp.org/facility-boards) , which advise Facility Boards on the science, environmental protection, and safety of proposed expedition sites.
