The ETIP Bioenergy Steering Committee

The Steering Committee (SC) is the decision making body and executive arm of the ETIP Bioenergy and directs all activities of the platform, being accountable for:

  • Defining the roles and responsibilities within the platform and outlining operations;
  • Compliance with the platform’s mission and related activities;
  • Approval and launching of activities: objectives, timing, scope;
  • Follow-up activities and approval of deliverables;
  • Setting high-level policy: coordination with external bodies and initiatives, communication and general organisation;

Final elaboration of key deliverables (e.g. the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda) with active support from the Secretariat and ETIP Bioenergy-SABS, based on the contributions from the Working Groups, thus ensuring harmonization of content and integrity of messages.

The ETIP Bioenergy Steering Committee may have 20-25 members. It is expected to have a balanced composition with regard to members’ nationalities and stakeholder groups (to include representatives of all main industries involved as well as research establishments, academic research bodies, the civil society and other organisations with relevant expertise or interest on advanced biofuels and bioenergy).

Current Members of the SC are listed below. Members are appointed for a 3-year term and may be reappointed for one further term. Members serve in a personal capacity, offering both individual expertise and, when appropriate, representing the collective view of their stakeholder group, not specifically their own company or institute. A Chairperson and a maximum of three Vice-Chairs are elected by the Members of the SC on the basis of personal capacities and appropriate representation of stakeholders. These individuals serve for a 2-year period and may be reappointed. The membership of the SC and position of Chairperson and Vice-Chairs are voluntary and are not subject to remuneration.
