Scientific Monitoring Board

The Scientific Monitoring Board monitors the scientific quality of SHARE and is also evaluating SHARE from a user perspective. It gives feedback to the Management Board and the research consortium at least once per year. Every two years, the Scientific Monitoring Board issues a written report to the Council of the SHARE-ERIC. This report also assesses the services offered to the users of the SHARE data.
