The Evaluation and Advisory Committee is an external body of the TICKET project which is supporting the project throughout its duration providing guidance and overseeing its progress.

The Committee (EAC) is made up of seven senior representative members of Higher Education Institutions and Colleges and will be chaired by Professor James Smith,Vice Principal International at the University of Edinburgh.

The EAC will review the outputs developed by TICKET Partners and will provide specific advice to improve the quality of the project. Members of the EAC will also be part of the “Community of Practice” of the Ticket project, acting as ‘champions’ to ensure the project has a high-level profile.
