Organs and Committees

The Program has a Board of Trustees and a Scientific and Pedagogic Advisory Board, as specified in the Convention signed by the three Patrons: Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, SIEMENS SA Portugal, and Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian.

The Board of Trustees will follow the operation of the Program and will ensure that its goals are fulfilled. To this end the Board of Trustees will appoint committees of external expert evaluators that will regularly assess the quality of the Program. Scientific and pedagogic advise both to the Program Direction and to the Board of Trustees is of the responsibility of the Scientific and Pedagogic Advisory Board. For details on the duties and functions of these two Boards see an extract of the Convention here.

Internal Program Committee

Besides these Boards created in the context of the Convention signed by the Patrons, the Program has an Internal Program Committee, composed of experts in computational biology who are aware of the portuguese scientific community and who were invited by the Direction to overview the general planning of the Program, offering criticisms and suggestions for its improvement. To this purpose, the members of the advisory committee may have access to every document referring to the Program and its management, are invited to the retreats organized during the Program, and have the possibility to privately interview the students and instructors.
