Strategy Advisory Board
The Strategy Advisory Board is fundamental to the running of 5GIC, incorporating both advisory and governance roles.
The responsibilities of the Strategy Advisory Board include the following key functions to agree on:
- Core research themes and approve the core research projects identified by the University to be undertaken under the core research programme and generally advise on, and encourage good research practice (such as the appointment of industry mentors' to support specific research areas)
- Principles around 5GIC IP exploitation and contributions to standards bodies if made
- Appropriate mechanisms for the approval of the use of background IP in core research projects.
