The Scientific and Policy Advisory Board (SPAB) is not part of the consortium officially, but its scientific and policy-oriented input for strategic decisions is highly valuable on a consultative level. The SPAB comprises renowned scientists and national and supranational policy-oriented stakeholders chosen to complement the consortium's expertise, adding additional countries beyond the case study countries to cover even more European aspects and to maximise impact and benefits of the project.
Thus, the SPAB consists of four scientific experts with specific expertise in comparative research and quantitative and/or qualitative methodology, political stakeholders with a strong links to national and supranational policies, and stakeholders, for example, in the area of teacher training. The composition of the SPAB will remain flexible during the project duration to allow for the goal-oriented exchange of information.
