STOA is eager to cooperate and exchange with stakeholders and partners within the European Parliament, the global parliamentary community and beyond. To this end, on 10 July 2020, the STOA Panel decided to appoint an International Advisory Board (INAB) for the remainder of the 9th parliamentary term (2020-2024).

At its meeting of 15 October 2020, the Panel agreed on a list of world-renowned individuals to invite to join the STOA INAB, including personalities from academia, international organisations, the private sector, civil society and think tanks. It will focus in particular upon STOA activities in the area of artificial intelligence (AI), including its Centre for AI (C4AI).

The Board now has 26 members. It is chaired by Eva KAILI, on behalf of STOA, and will meet virtually for the first time on 5 February 2021. This meeting will serve to introduce the Board to the STOA Panel, get Board members acquainted with each other and set out a framework for the Board's future activities.
