Scientific Committee

The Scientific Committee is composed of one delegate from each of the eight EACTA Subspecialty Committees and is chaired by the EACTA Subspecialty Commitee Coordinator. Under the supervision of the chair, the scientific committee takes care of the EACTA research grant applications, applications for endorsement of events, surveys, consensus papers and guidelines and supports the Board of Directors with their expertise in the context of their subspecialties. Each member of the Scientific Committee is also member of the abstract reviewing committee.
