FUTURE Scientific Steering Committee
Terms of Reference
  1. Provide leadership and scientific direction to implement the PICES FUTURE program;
  2. Report semi-annually to Science Board on progress achieved by the FUTURE science program, and to identify impediments that hinder progress, and to recommend solutions/actions to enable progress;
  3. Work with PICES Standing Committees and Expert Groups to ensure collective and integrated delivery of FUTURE;
  4. Develop new Expert Groups as required;
  5. Integrate, promote and stimulate national activities around the vision statement and core science questions of FUTURE;
  6. Identify and facilitate interactions with national/international research programs from which FUTURE could benefit;
  7. Communicate FUTURE research and products in order to translate them into high level impacts for PICES and its member countries.
  8. Provide recommendations to Science Board on options for implementing PICES integrative science. (added Oct. 2018)
FUTURE Phase II-III
  1. Implementation Plan Term 2016-2020 (pdf)
  2. Implementation Plan Term 2021-2025 (pdf)
  3. FUTURE-SSC Liaisons to PICES Expert Groups: An objective for the FUTURE-SSC is to enhance communication within PICES. As such, members of the FUTURE-SSC will serve as liaisons to specific EGs and Committees. The responsibilities of the liaisons will be to: (a) attend the EG and Committee meetings with which they liaise in order to monitor the EGs progress and to report on FUTURE developments; (b) provide scientific direction towards implementation of FUTURE; and (c) report back to the FUTURE-SSC on the EG and Committee activities relevant to the FUTURE program. In addition, the Co-Chairs of the FUTURE-SSC will solicit annual Activity Reports from each EG and Committee prior to the PICES Annual Meeting, and report semi-annually to Science Board on the progress and any impediments to the implementation of the FUTURE program.
