Each of Luke’s research programmes has a Stakeholder Advisory Board (StAB) that represents the stakeholders and clients of central importance to Luke. The Stakeholder Advisory Boards convene once or twice annually to discuss the development needs and result of the thematic programme in question. Most of the members are Finnish or residents of Finland, but it is also possible to request international experts to take part, if there is not similar expertise available in the country.
