The consortium comprises groups from six universities, each working in their field of expertise, guided by a Management Board. Principal investigators from each group sits on the Management Board, which ensures that DAPPLE's original goals are met with an integrated multidisciplinary approach.
The consortium is led by Prof. Alan Robins at the University of Surrey.
The aim of the PAG is to provide external views and opinions on project aims and progress, to foster relationship between DAPPLE and similar work in progress elsewhere, to enable the wider dissemination of project achievements and to provide feedback from potential users of the research output. The PAG is formed from the supporters group of the original project proposal.
