Participation as external Advisory Board members in research projects


CDSL members regularly participate as external Advisory Board members in (EU H2020 and other) research projects. We consider this an important aspect of our research involvement, not only in terms of contribution to the CDSL's aims and purposes, but also as a means to disseminate our own work and research results and also, through continued exposure in neighbouring research fields, to gain unique insight into the latest developments and trends.
