The External Vertical Industries Advisory Board (EVIAB) is a body that provides non-binding technical advice to the management of 5Growth. EVIAB is composed of accomplished representatives from other verticals/sectors not represented in the project with expertise relevant to the goals of 5Growth: SEGITTUR, GMV and SigFoX. The informal nature of an advisory board gives greater flexibility in structure and management. The EVIAB will meet (physically or virtually) twice per year with the PMT to provide their feedback and advice on technical directions and potential challenges. The EVIAB may be contacted by the PMT if advice is needed. The PMT further informs the EVIAB about public deliverables, and the EVIAB promotes results gained within 5Growth.
