Scientific Advisory Board

The Scientific Advisory Board (ScAB) consists of national and international experts in health literacy. They will support and advise the research especially on scientific methods, approaches to conceptualise health literacy, and policy transfer. The board is crucial for the linkage of the individual subprojects and is therefore closely connected to the subprojects on basic research.

The ScAB will be invited to join and give input during consortium meetings. In addition, the ScAB is encouraged to comment upon the research progress and to offer advice on the project development and on knowledge transfer, exploitation and dissemination of results. In collaboration with the board, strengthening networking and international connectivity is another major goal of the HLCA group. The ScAB consists of following members
