The SAB plays a strategic advisory role for the Steering Committee. Consequently, it provides advice and recommendations on the major strategic and scientific orientations and technological options for the IFB infrastructure.
The SAB submits its conclusions and recommendations to the IFB Governing Council (the report is drawn up at the end of SAB meetings), which ensures that they have been taken into account by the IFB Steering Committee.
The SAB meets at least once every two years. It is invited by the Executive Director as often as necessary to meet the Steering Committee and discuss the main scientific and technological orientations. The schedule of meetings is set by the Supervisory Committee and the Chair person of the SAB on the proposal of the Steering Committee.
