Our Scientific Advisory Board
Genesis has set up a Scientific Advisory Board whose members are eminent personalities in the fields of soil, biology, agronomy and data, chosen for their individual skills and their scientific and technical vision.
The role of the board is to help Genesis build its scientific and technical development plan and to prioritise and direct the work of its internal team and of the academic and private partners involved in its work.
The board supports the Scoring (science and data) team in particular on methodological issues related to the choice of indicators, measurement methods and scoring algorithms.
