Scientific Advisory Committee

The scientific advisers are drawn from academic circles (ex ufficio/honorary members), from public bodies (ex ufficio) and industry (by personal appointment) and have the task of ensuring excellence in science at Access. This guarantees a solid contribution in at least one of the three driving forces of competitiveness: quality to customer, time to market and design to cost.
