Scientific Review Groups

Previously ESF had Scientific Standing Committees composed of leading scientists nominated by the ESF’s Member Organisations who were responsible for identifying scientific priorities, formulating strategies, developing research agendas and conducting peer review

From 2013, five smaller Scientific Review Groups (SRGs) replaced the previous Standing Committees which were disbanded at the end of 2012. These SRGs were streamlined to adapt to the progressive winding down of research networking instruments and advise ESF and its Chief Executive on research matters. They came to the end of their mandate at the end of 2015.
