Strategic Board

The Abacus NW Maths Hub has established a Strategic Board to ensure that it demonstrates transparency and is open to external scrutiny regarding its work. It also allows the Maths Hub to draw upon strategic advice and support from people with relevant specialist expertise and local knowledge.

The majority of our Strategic Board Members (including the Chair) are independent of our lead institutions. You can find a list of our members below.
