Advisory bodies

Two advisory bodies help to guide the UQ Centre for Natural Gas' activities and priorities:
  • The Strategic Advisory Board (SAB) guides the strategic direction of the centre and maintains an overview of the centre's performance.

  • The Technical Advisory Board (TAG) reviews the centre's research proposals and monitors the progress of ongoing projects to ensure that they satisfy the centre's research and education priorities.
