The role of the selection panel is to assist ARIADNE in selecting users for transnational access to services provided by PIN, the Athena Research Centre and CNR. The members of the panel are international experts in archaeological research data and includes experts who are independent of the ARIADNE infrastructure. The Selection Panel is normally convened annually to review applications for transnational access in the coming period. The project coordinator chairs the Selection Panel with MDR Partners providing the secretariat.
