The PIXEL Advisory Board (AB) is intended to be a valuable group of experts related to various fields of knowledge that are willing to contribute to the success of the project. The main purpose of this venture is to gain feedback on several matters of the project from an external expert viewpoint.
Selected members of this board will meet regularly with the Consortium throughout the project. At the same time, the Consortium will allow the members to keep track of global advance of the project and to be aware of scientific and industrial discoveries to be reached.

Rafael Socorro - ACCIONA Construcción S.A.
Lucija Kolar - Complementarium
Mrs. Kolar will provide valued feedback on global flavour of PIXEL outputs (deliverables, external communication, relation with other initiatives), on academic accuracy of procedures and on scalability and future research lines after PIXEL concepts. You can see a short PIXEL interview here.
Charalampos Platias - Greek Ministry of Maritime Affairs
Mr. Platias will provide a different viewpoint for the project. Public administration might play a key role when a solution like PIXEL is finally implemented in a real port. In this sense, alignment with regulation, competences and public athority is expected drawing from his collaboration. This will have a special relevance on Greek ports’ pilots that will be executed in PIXEL (Thessaloniki Port and Piraeus Port). You can see a short PIXEL interview here.
José Manuel García - TIBA and Port of Valencia
Though currently working as CIO at TIBA, Mr. García de la Guía has worked in the Port of Valencia in various managing sectors for more than 15 years. He is expected to provide very valuable feedback on applicability of PIXEL technology and methodology to Valencia Port. Furhtermore, Mr. García should be able to help PIXEL establishing interesting links with cluster/initiatives about innovative concepts for Mediterranean ports.
