The Society has restructured its governance of research by appointing a Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) whose members are chosen from the Professional Advisory Panel for a three years period with the possibility of renewal their appointment for a further 3 year period. The members will have clear roles and responsibilities and will include lay members. They provide advice and make recommendations to the trustees regarding the applications received. Members of the SAP manage the peer-review process ensuring transparency, accountability, fairness and impartiality when assessing the quality of the research.
