The Consiglio di Sorveglianza of the Human Technopole Foundation has appointed eight experts with proven professional qualifications to form the Standing Independent Evaluation Committee (CIVP).
In view of the upcoming opening of the National Facilities, the CIVP’s task will be to assess and approve the applications for access to the Facilities. During its first meetings, the CIVP will therefore elaborate the selection procedures for the access to the Facilities, including the criteria for the evaluation and selection of access requests, according to international best practices.
