The Science|Business Technology Strategy Board (TSB) consists of a select group of thought leaders from across the international R&D community, who share a passion and strategic concern for how research collaboration is designed and governed. Its members – both from within the Science|Business Network and beyond – participate in an individual capacity, seeking to inspire and inform a truly global discussion of the strategic issues which will define the development of key emerging technologies, from quantum and climate to health and energy.

To express interest in becoming a member of the TSB, please contact Richard L. Hudson, Vice-Chair of the Science|Business Board of Directors, at [email protected]
