To allow broad participation of practitioners, researchers, industry professionals, policymakers and members of civil society, ALIGNER makes use of its Law Enforcement Agency Advisory Board and its Scientific, Industrial and Ethics Advisory Board. Members of these advisory boards can participate in project workshops, provide feedback and guidance on activities and outcomes of the project, and will act as information conduits between the project and other stakeholders.

Individual experts can become members of ALIGNER’s advisory boards by declaring interest via the online form below. After a positive review of the declaration of interest, CBRNE Ltd. – as manager of ALIGNER’s advisory boards – will contact prospective advisory board members with initial instructions and further information.

In addition to its two advisory boards, ALIGNER maintains a liaison group with other research projects that cover topics connected to the topics of ALIGNER.
