In order to exercise scientific overview and steering for CaSToRC, The Cyprus Institute relies on the expert advise of a Scientific Expert Panel (SEP). The SEP provides the Institute with independent scientific advice of the highest possible caliber on scientific issues and policy necessary for the development of CaSToRC.
In particular, the SEP make recommendations on issues related to the research scope and thrusts and to the future development of the Center, evaluate the ongoing programs and projects, and facilitate scientific partnerships and collaborations for the Center.
The Members and Chair of the SEP are appointed by the President of CyI. The Committee meets at least twice a year.
