In accordance with the Technical Annex of the Project, an independent Advisory Board (AB) has been set up within the first months of the project.
AB members (Neuroscientists, Computer Scientist, and representative of European and international projects on Alzheimer's disease) have been identified per their expertise and have been asked to contribute to specific activities of the project, among which:

  • Promote links of neuGRID with worldwide ADNI related initiatives

  • Advice on compatibility issues and potential integration of other(similar) platforms, advice on gridification models, support in formulating new requirements for submission to the EGEE gLite (grid middleware) community

  • Advice on neuGRID's features of potential interest to pharma

  • Help with political liaisons at the European level and links with neuroscientific communities

  • Take part to user requirements session

  • Provide feedback about the performance of neuGRID.
