Project Steering Committee

This committee includes the persons nominated by the Partner and Associate Partner Agencies. The main role of the steering committee is to follow the milestones of the project in coordination with the PI, to review the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the Construction Phase that will be prepared during Phase A, and to organise in Europe (and Brazil) the scientific and financial support of the ELT/MOS. It will include countries in the core of the project (Partners : France, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Brazil, Germany) as well as other participating countries (Associate Partners : Austria, Finland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, USA) including those interested in financially supporting the project in exchange for Guaranteed Observing Time, or their participation in Public Surveys.

The committee is composed of : Jose Afonso (IA, Lisbon Univ.), Portugal - Beatriz Barbuy (IAG, Sao Paulo), Brazil - Edwin Bergin (Univ. of Michigan), USA - Alexis Finogenov (Helsinki Univ.), Finland - Jesus Gallego (Madrid, Computense Univ.), Spain - Lex Kaper (Amsterdam Univ.), Netherlands - Olivier Le Fèvre (LAM, Marseille), France - Simon Morris (Durham Univ.), U.K. - Goran Ostlin (Stockholm Univ.), Sweden - Laura Pentericci (INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Roma), Italy - Martin Roth (AIP, Potsdam), Germany - Daniel Schaerer (Univ. of Geneva), Switzerland - Bodo Ziegler (Vienna Univ.), Austria.
