Applications are open to join the Adra Board of Directors which will be elected during the upcoming General Assembly of Adra on the 2nd of March 2023.
Applications are open for professionals who have the necessary competence, experience and knowledge in one or more of the three fields (AI, Data and Robotics) and is either an individual proposed by a Research Member or an individual proposed by an Industrial Member. There is always an even representation between the three fields of AI, Data and Robotics, as well as Research and Industry members. In practice this means that a candidate is required to pick one of the three disciplines, whereas the industry/research category is derived from the organisation proposing the candidate. The size of the board will be determined after the closing of the call of candidates, relative to the number of candidates for each of the aforementioned categories (e.g. 6, 12, or 18 seats).
Please note that Directors have a particular responsibility to ensure that the knowledge, views and experience of these disciplines are brought to bear for the benefit of the Association.
The formalities on the composition of the board as well as the application are described in the Articles of the Association that can be downloaded from the following link.
