Technical Oversight Committee
The Technical Oversight Committee of the UT-UTC will consist of the Center Director and a faculty representative from each university for each one of the three focus areas: alternate energy, infrastructure utilization, and supply chains. In cases where universities have limited interest and/or expertise in one of the areas, they can chose not to appoint someone to the committee in that focus area.
The Technical Oversight Committee will evaluate research proposals and make recommendations to the Policy Committee regarding feasibility, technical rigor, and budget adequacy. They may engage outside reviewers to evaluate proposals when the proposals are outside the expertise of the members. Its role will be strictly advisory. The Technical Oversight Committee will also review projects periodically and final reports and provide feedback for the PI, UTC staff and Policy Committee.
