1) Strategic Advisory
Chair: Lord Sebastian Coe - LOCOG
will provide strategic guidance direction for ESPRIT, particularly in terms of
translational, industrial collaboration and outreach strategies, and help to
ensure the research evolves and responds to academic, industrial, commercial
and healthcare stakeholder requirements.The SAB
will play a critical part in the mid-term review of ESPRIT and membership will
evolve to reflect the migration of research emphasis within the overall
2) Programme Executive Board (PE)
Chair: Prof. Guang-Zhong Yang - Imperial College London
The Programme Executive (PE) board is responsible for the overall management of the ESPRIT project. The PE will mainly consist of the project co-investigators, UK Sport, and invited academics.Apart from monitoring and managing the academic qualities and research deliverables in the project, the PE will execute the research strategies and priorities based on the reviews and recommendations made by the RSG, and develop strategies for knowledge transfer and dissemination activities.
Steering Group (RSG): research guidance and prioritisation
Chairs: Dr. Scott Drawer-UK Sport/Prof. Leonard Fass-Imperial College London
The research steering group
shall provide scientific review and guidance. The group will
consist of academics, industrialists and key user stakeholders in the ESPRIT
programme. Membership will develop and change over time as the focus of ESPRIT
evolves. The role of RSG is also to
make recommendations to the management committee of the continuation or
termination of certain research activities, as well as the key element of
initiating new directions of strategic importance as technology in pervasive
sensing evolves, such as proof of concept (PoC) projects and extensions of the
core activities (GOLD Core+). The
prioritisation of research resources to these new strategic directions will use
a process of peer review and assist to define the additional research and
resources required to intersect with the long-term goals of the Programme.
Prioritisation recommendations will pass to the PE for funding decisions and then ratified by the SAB.
