Internal Advisory Committee

The Internal Advisory Committee (IAC) provides support and assistance to the Management Board during the development and implementation of the JPI Oceans governance, plans, actions and activities.

The main tasks and responsibilities of the Internal Advisory Committee are to assist in the preparation of the Management Board meetings. In doing so the committee prepares proposals for actions, thereby allowing the Management Board to focus on strategic decisions. In addition, the IAC oversees that the work of the secretariat is carried out according to the Management Board decisions. The Internal Advisory Committee replaces the Executive Committee as part of the establishment of the AISBL.

The IAC is made up of seven members: the Chair and Vice Chair of the Management Board (MB), and five additional members that were elected through voting during the Management Board meeting in October, hosted in Iceland. In the case of a second Vice Chair, the committee could potentially comprise of eight members. The Chair of the Management Board is Arvid Hallén, who was elected as Chair under the mandate of the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries in 2017. The Vice Chair is Dr. Joachim Harms, Head of the Division Marine Research, Geosciences, Ship and Marine Technology Project Management Jülich, Germany.
