WAVE ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS

The WAVE Advisory Board is installed in order to support the WAVE Board, to intensify the coordination and planning for the WAVE Network, and to ensure representation from all regions. It consists of one delegate and one co-delegate (substitute) from each country. Delegates and co-delegates are appointed by the member organisations of the respective country for a certain period of time. The Advisory Board further consists of academic and thematic experts nominated by the board for a certain period of time, and are international experts. During bi-annual network meetings the WAVE Advisory Board enables the WAVE Office to work closely with its members. Every country is represented by a delegate of their choice, as well as a co-delegate, who work closely together to support the WAVE Board.
