The External Expert Advisory Board (EEAB) brings together influential international scientists, service developers and users, data managers as well as representative from international organizations who provide space prediction services to users, with interests relevant to the project, but who are independent of it.

EEAB ensures that the project is engaged with and responsive to developments in Europe and non-EU countries. It will have an important role in ensuring the project achieves its intended impacts in terms of structuring the European Research Area in connection with non-EU initiatives and International standards, having the power to co-opt/appoint members from other EU/non-EU projects with whom PITHIA-NRF wishes to engage.

The EEAB membres (Advisors) are:
