The current points of contact are Stephen Smartt (Chair of the GC), and Andrew Levan (Chair of the EC). The GC deals with the overall governance, policy and membership issues. The EC’s remit is to operationally run ENGRAVE as a functioning science consortium within the governance policies. The members of ENGRAVE are listed here and the process for gaining ENGRAVE membership is listed at the bottom of the page.

Scientists can apply for membership of ENGRAVE at any time. Postdocs and students who are supervised by existing team members will have a streamlined membership application process the supervisor should login to the ENGRAVE wiki for instructions). Independent scientists will be considered on a 3 month rolling deadline, with the next deadlines 25th September 2018, 31st December 2018 and 31st March 2019. These independent scientists should define what they will contribute to ENGRAVE (such as complementary expertise) and what working groups they envisage being part of. This should be sent by email to the Chair of the Governing Council (Stephen Smartt), who will provide the ENGRAVE Publication Policy. This policy must be explicitly agreed to in order to join.
