Scientific Steering Committee (SSC)

The PAGES project is guided by an international Scientific Steering Committee (SSC).
The authority for all PAGES policies and activities resides with the PAGES SSC. Members are active scientists who represent the major disciplines in the paleosciences and provide geographical representation. Alongside expertise and nationalities, the SSC also aims to obtain a balance in gender and career stages.
Applications to become a member of PAGES' SSC are welcomed from the community, with open calls made generally once a year. More information here.
SSC tasks include:
– Overall responsibility for the PAGES project
– Developing and promoting PAGES' scientific agenda
– Communicating with the PAGES International Project Office
– Acting as a liaison to PAGES workshop organizers and working groups
– Representing PAGES at meetings
– As opportunities arise, SSC members may also host PAGES workshops, guest edit PAGES Magazine or journal issues, and coordinate national PAGES activities.
Scientists who serve on the SSC normally do so for a period of three years, with the potential of renewal for an additional term.

Executive Committee (EXCOM)
Five SSC members also serve on an Executive Committee (EXCOM), which is in more regular contact with the International Project Office. The EXCOM is selected by serving SSC members.
PAGES' Executive Director Marie-France Loutre is also an EXCOM member.
