Members of the Center for Revolutionary Solar Photoconversion (CRSP) play a key role in identifying Shared Research Program research thrust areas and selecting research projects for funding each year, among other activities. Each member appoints one representative to serve on the CRSP Advisory Panel. This body represents the general interests of the CRSP members. The Advisory Panel elects a chair and vice chair every two years to lead its activities as well as serving ex officio with five additional elected individuals on the Advisory Panel's Steering Committee.
The seven-person Steering Committee provides guidance on CRSP research policy, allocation of resources, and technology transfer. For example, each year CRSP issues a Request for Proposal (RFP) to the scientists and faculty in the Collaboratory Institutions under the Shared Research Program. The Steering Committee helps develop the RFP's research thrust areas, appoints members to serve on proposal review and ranking committees, and in conjunction with the Executive Board, selects proposals to receive funding.
