Scientific Advisory Committee

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) is comprised of representatives from each of the consortium member organizations, and co-chaired by representatives from University of Toronto and Western University.

When collaborative research proposals are submitted to SOSCIP, the SAC is responsible for reviewing, evaluating and approving proposals, as well as determining and approving the allocation of SOSCIP resources. After research projects are approved, the SAC regularly checks in and reviews projects progress.
