Educational Committee

ICO's Education Committee (EC) consists of at least one, but preferrably two PhD members from each of the ICO universities. The EC members are concerned with the quality of the education program. They discuss the evaluations of the courses and master classes, and make suggestions for improvements of the courses. Furthermore, the EC has an advisory role with regard to the aims and components of the educational programme. If you have any questions or request concerning ICO's educational programme, you can always contact your local representative; ICO can always use your imput!

The ICO Educational Committee meets several times a year with the Educational Director and the Executive Secretary of Education.
