    The DiSSCo Steering Committee consists of the directors and other personnel of those institutions that contributed financially to the preparation of the DiSSCo proposal for inclusion on the ESFRI roadmap 2018 and the Coordination Team. Its members are:

     

    Proposal authors and editors

    The development of the DiSSCo proposal was a complex undertaking that included a series of projects for developing the science case, technical design and putting together an elaborate governance and financial model.

    More than 150 individuals in 21 countries were involved, in some capacity, to the development of the proposal and the consortium.

    The Coordination Team and the heads of the National task Forces collaborated on bringing the porposal together, coordinating the very valuable work of numerous, highly engaged authors in different fields of the proposal. These contributors are as follows, listed by the area of the proposal they contributed to:

    For the Science Case and ESFRI Questionnaire:

    For the Technical Design:

    And for the Governance and Finance Model:

    Proposal reviewers

    We also extend our gratitutde to the reviewers of the proposal who supported us in this challenging process:
